Earlier I booted into ubuntu and an error message popped up during the boot saying (loosely quoted): "ubuntu is checking drives for errors". It gave me a series of options and I pressed "f" to attempt to fix these errors. The situtation was eventually solved and ubunut booted successfully but I noticed that Firefox was missing from the unity launcher and drom the dash. I checked the software centre to see if it was installed and it said it was. I managed to run firefox through the terminal and when I do this message appears in the terminal:
I tried re-installing but that didn't work so I decided to see if I could install chromium browser instead, but when I clicked the install button no authentication request showed up and it didn't install, almost as if the software centre wasn't responding.

Also, when I booth up a message pops up saying (again, loosely quoted): "error found with your computer, would you like to report it now?". When I click report, nothing happens.
Is there anything that can be done about this?
I'm running Ubuntu 12.10 that dual boots with Windows 7 both with a 250 GB partition to each OS, by the way.
