I installed Ubuntu 12.10. No other operating system on machine. Software Center closes after I try to open it. Get the following error message "sorry, Ubuntu 12.10 has experienced an internal error.
Restarted but get same thing.
I feel that there may be a hard drive issue here.
I get the following error for anything that I try to install .
Reading package lists... Error! E: Read error - read (5: Input/output error) E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.``
The system seems to be updated as it does not say that an update is required after updating.
