while facing problem(s) with software center 5.2.6 on ubuntu 12.04, i reinstalled the software center and executed following command on gnome terminal
$ sudo dpkg --configure -a
Setting up software-center (5.2.6) ... Updating software catalog...**this may take a moment.**
However there is no or little beyond this point.
Is there any other way to update software catalog? because every other time i open up software center it keeps on crashing.
