Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Every time I click the grey, "turn on recommendations" button at the bottom of the software center, it turns into a moving circle and then the grey button comes back. Recommendations won't turn on no matter how many times I click. That's the only problem I know of other than steam not showing up. So what's going on and how do I fix it.

cat ~/.config/software-center/softwarecenter.cfg
maximized = False
size = 1200, 800
add_to_launcher = True
recommender_uuid = 
recommender_profile_id = 
email = local@domain

I deleted my keyring key for the center and re-logged in. Still no go.
