Using Xubuntu 12.
I can't open either the Software Center or Update Manager. I'm a complete novice!
I get the following error:
Failed to execute command "/usr/bin/software-center %u". Failed to execute child process "/usr/bin/software-center" (No such file or directory)
I tried all I can think of by update via Synaptic package Manager but nothing I've done works.
I've the CD but now I'm used to this and I don't want to do a clean install and lose all my files etc.
Can a repair be done? or can it be repaired with the CD?
I'm not that good with computers but absolutely love Xubuntu?
Please make my day and tell me it can be solved!
Edit: Some outputs which may help.
alan@alan-Aspire-2930:~$ cd /usr/share/software-center/; ls | grep ^software-center$ software-center
it means there is
software-center and is not deleted.
alan@alan-Aspire-2930:/usr/share/software-center$ sudo ln -s '/usr/share/software-center/software-center' '/usr/bin' [sudo] password for alan: ln: failed to create symbolic link `/usr/bin/software-center': File exists alan@alan-Aspire-2930:/usr/share/software-center$
it means symbolic link also exists. It is very strange because when you run
software-center it says
(No such file or directory) !!!
