'Software update center' is throwing error. The error was uploaded to LaunchPad. Following is the like to it:

Following is the description on how it started misbehaving which I added to the bug description:
Was trying to install chromium, vlc & restricted-ubuntu-extras in my first restart after installing ubuntu 11.04.
during installing chromium (which was the first on the list), Ubuntu Software Center stopped responding after downloading about 16MB. I restarted my machine. after which it said that chrome is installed. on installing restricted-ubuntu-extras, this error came.

Now I am not able to install anything using 'Software Update Center'.

Please give me help me out here.

Hello & welcome to the forums,

Please could you let me know what happens when you issue the following commands:

sudo dpkg --configure -a

sudo apt-get install -f

Have you tried going into the Synaptic Package Manager and choosing Edit -> Fix Broken Packages?
