Software center not opening

I think I've tried everything found. It is on just for a second. I can't even send an error report. What should I do? thanks in advance.

so this is what I get after typing software-center in terminal (sorry, not as a code):

try running in a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+t): 'software-center' and paste the output here –  leousa Jun 16 '12 at 20:37
    
are you running it from a guest session or from your user session? –  leousa Jun 16 '12 at 21:12
    
From user session.. –  Noye Jun 16 '12 at 21:25
    
If you want to submit data to Launchpad and file a bug report on your 12.04 system, my answer here explains how. (That answer does not explain the cause of this crash, however--it is in no way specific to the particular Software Center problem you are experiencing.) –  Eliah Kagan Jun 17 '12 at 8:43

You have an error with one PPA. Typing "sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/yannubuntu* && sudo apt-get update" should fix it.
