first run the commands to remove the software center then the ones to reinstall. see if that helps



Press CTRL+ALT+T simultaneously to enter terminal.

To uninstall Software Center:

  1. sudo apt-get remove software-center

  2. sudo apt-get autoremove software-center

To re-install Software Center:

  1. sudo apt-get update

  2. sudo apt-get install software-center :devil:

I found that 13.04 caused more problems with my Realtek Wifi adapter on my Toshiba Satellite C850d-ST3NX1 laptop, so rolled back to 12.04 LTS.  Signal would drop, as if the adapter was going into a power saving mode, but no loss of contact with the A/P I use in our Living Room.


I am going to wait for the next LTS, before moving out of 12.04.

If the reinstall of the Software Center doesn't fix the problem, you can downgrade the Software Center Package. Open the Synaptic Package Manager and run a search for "software-center" and check the version installed. Go to the Lauchpad site and see what other stable versions are available for download.You can then do your uninstall and new installation from the Synaptic Package Manager. 


When you run the Synaptic search you'll notice that there is also a package available called Lubuntu Software Center. While this package is graphically challenged in comparison to the default package, it does the same job. Both Software Centers can co-exist without conflict.

Or you could use the command line which is called apt-get

apt-get install packagename

apt-get update = update

apt-get upgrade = invokes downloaded updates done by apt-get update

apt-cache search packagename = searches for packages example apt-cache search nvidia* would look in the apt-get repos for any packages that have nvidia in them.

apt-get autoremove = removes old packages not needed

apt-get purge packagename = removes a package
