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!

    This tells the story of how I finally managed a successful transfer of email data from KMail version 1.13.6 to version 4.11.5. It is a non-technical essay exploring the obstacles I encountered, my options, and the methods I used to achieve my aim. It was written partly to give the information, but also with the hope that readers will both enjoy and be amused by the story of the "battle of KMail" that was ultimately won against "incredible odds". Links to the earlier articles discussing problems with KMail 4x are given at the end.
  • [GSoC] Kdev-Embedded, Debugging and programming embedded systems
    The actual embedded system word depends on closed-source IDEs and libraries, with high monetary value and deprecated functionalities. Programmers that would like to use ARM based boards without paying for an IDE will have problems setting up such development ambient and synchronized toolkits. The main idea of this project is to provide a plugin integrated with KDevelop to help the debugging and programming process of embedded systems like AVR, ARM and x86 based boards.
