This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Can you provide more information?. Which Ubuntu version are you using?. Can you post an screenshot?. How long do you wait for it to open?. If you know how to open it from a terminal, can you post any messages that it prints to the terminal?. – Javier Rivera Apr 9 '12 at 11:42
It happens frequently for me too ,just reboot it will return to original state – Tachyons Apr 9 '12 at 13:43

Wait for some time. It will load, first time it might take more time. If you want to know the status do this in terminal

sudo apt-get update

after closing software center
