I think I might have deleted my ubuntu software-center or something. All I know is I can't find it in my computer.

I've already tried the terminal commands to re-install it but it says I already have ubuntu software-center, yet it's no where on my computer.

So now I've downloaded software center from the internet but now I don't have the right program to open it.
