    Ubuntu Software Center not launching on today's daily build

    Wondering if anyone could try to reproduce a strange issue I'm facing in today's daily build. I've tried to launch the software center from the applications menu, from the Xfce bottom panel and from the terminal but it fails in any of the ways attempted.
    There are no crash reports either in /var/crash either in /var/log

    Here's the specs:
    Code:
    ~$ lsb_release -a && uname -r
    No LSB modules are available.
    Distributor ID:    Ubuntu
    Description:    Ubuntu Saucy Salamander (development branch)
    Release:    13.10
    Codename:    saucy

    when I run it in the terminal i get this, this is not a clean install from today, BTW the command is software-center or software-center-gtk3 they both do the same thing here
    Code:

    Hi, pqwoerituytrueiwoq.

    Thanks for taking the time to look into it, I appreciate it.

    I'm testing it also in my virtual box and also that's the output I get when I tried to launch it from the terminal:
    Code:
    slickymaster@slickymaster-VirtualBox:~$ software-center

        super(SoftwareCenterConfig, self).__init__()

    So far, I wasn't able to figure it out, but already filed a bug at Launchpad: Bug #1198898 - Ubuntu Software Center not launching

    Yeah, I see what you mean, 824 of them. Thanks for the heads up.

    Besides reporting against the package, do you have any suggestions where to report it?

    Simply ignore it, and use the well proofed apt-get/synaptic

    It's not a matter of personal use. Thing is that I'm testing for Ubuntu ISO Testing and we're supposed to report any bugs along the way.
