I removed software center from the terminal and after that I tried to install it from synaptic package manager. Now I get a message saying that it's unable to retrieve a few packages. Have a look:

W: Failed to fetch http://in.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/k/kdepimlibs/libkmime4_4.7.1+git111001-0ubuntu1_i386.deb

I actually was getting report error pop-ups and was irritated with it so removed the software center and after that I never got this error. Please help me.

The packages have been updated in the repository.

I would recommend you run an update to refresh your "indexes" before retrying the installation i.e.

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
