Some how my ubuntu 14.04 has lubuntu software center and I do not have ubuntu software center? I want it to be normal. How do I delete lubuntu software center and install the normal software center? Thank you

to close voters: this is not a bug; seems to me that this is a manual install of another software center. – Rinzwind Apr 6 '14 at 19:24
@Rinzwind that's why I removed the 14.04 tag. That is misleading. – Braiam Apr 8 '14 at 0:57
Although you can install "normal" Software Center, I don't think there are any great differences b/w the Lubuntu one and the Ubuntu one. – Bharadwaj Raju Apr 26 at 12:16

To remove lUbuntu Software Center:

sudo apt-get purge lubuntu-software-center

If needed you can install Ubuntu Software Center with:

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-software-center
