    Software center crashes immediately after opening.

    It just opens, spins twice, and closes. I've re-installed several times, tried rebooting, and as I've only been using linux for three weeks, my knowledge is exhausted. Sorry if this is a repost. Heres what happens in terminal:
    Code:

    Thanks for any help.

    Did you Google the last line?

    It leads to http://askubuntu.com/questions/29418...e-center-cache

    My .cache folder is on the same drive, although it does run in sudo. When I tried the lest step I get
    Code:
    chown: cannot access `/mnt/data/.cache': No such file or directory
