I just completed a fresh install of 12.04. I logged in and tried to open the software center - it opens for only a few seconds, then it closes. It happens whether I am in the root account or guest account. There is no error message provided either.
Try this. Just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the commands below.
