Here is the error from the LXTerminal.

philip@philip-desktop:~$ sudo apt-get install software-center
[sudo] password for philip:

Package software-center is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'software-center' has no installation candidate
