Ubuntu Software Center Not Working

Filed under
Ubuntu

Matt, I am pulling my hair out! I have tried everything short of re-installing Ubuntu to fix a problem I am having with the Ubuntu Software Center.

My problems are many, but let me go again list them. First of all, I am getting errors indicating that somehow I have broken packages. I have no idea how, but it seems that this is stopping me from being able to install software via apt. On top of that, and this one has me completely blown away…the software center is no longer allowing me to install software. What I mean by that is I click the install button for any application, and it does nothing. When I ran the software center in the terminal, it just gave me a weird error when I’d click on the install button.

Please help, this isn’t how I wanted to start off my week!

Tried Elementary OS 0.4.1 Loki again - Negatory

The Linux desktop needs a reset. We're now in a post-Ubuntu world, with Unity gone, and we're back in sad and forlorn 2005. There isn't a single major project out there where you can look and say, wow, there's gonna be a fun and exciting year ahead of us. Well, maybe one or two. The rest? Just run-of-the-mill stuff. The forums are quiet, because there isn't anything to report, and rehashing kernel versions and desktop versions isn't really worth anyone's time. I think elementary OS represents this crisis quite well. On its own, it's a badly cobbled release, with too many issues and inconsistencies and a dreadful approach to ergonomics, making it useless to most people, all other things notwithstanding. But it was too buggy for me to even attempt to install it. Not going well. Alas, unless something cardinal changes, I cannot recommend this one at all. The combo of visual glitches, mediocre performance and middling hardware support does not warrant a longer adventure. Perhaps one day this will change, but for now, you're better off with stock Ubuntu. And by that I mean up to Zesty, ad I haven't tried Aardvark yet. Take care, and stay golden.
