Could this be a duplicate of Dash search function does not work. So you can try following:

sudo apt-get install --reinstall unity unity-common unity-lens-applications unity-lens-files unity-lens-gwibber unity-lens-music unity-place-applications unity-place-files unity-scope-musicstores unity-services unity-2d unity-2d-launcher unity-2d-launcher unity-2d-panel unity-2d-places unity-2d-spread unity-asset-pool unity-greeter 

Then you can just log out and back in or sudo restart lightdm
