No, there is not currently a way to do it more cleanly than that - unless you write some solution up yourself. Now, if you wanted to do that, likely what you'd want to do is have some scripts like: #!/bin/bash # sets a dark theme gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface gtk-theme "Some-Dark-Theme" gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface icon-theme "...

Open Software and Updates and go to the "Other Software" tab. You will see your ppas all unchecked and labeled as "disabled on upgrade to xenial". Just check the boxes and hit close. It will want to reload the information - let it - and then you can reinstall your software. If you want to get rid of the line saying "disabled" you can highlight the ppa ...

I have experienced the same problem. Until it is fixed, I suggest using Synaptic package manager. All the packages are available there and it works very well. sudo apt-get install synaptic sudo apt-get install gksudo gksudo synaptic (it is safe to skip a step if already installed) Search for your package (application) by name and right click and mark ...

uGet actually has instructions on its website. You need to run the commands below to add the PPA, then install it. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:plushuang-tw/uget-stable sudo apt update sudo apt install uget Just a pointer, I don't think I've ever seen a package name with uppercase letters, so when you install a package through the terminal, use lowercase. ...

At least Synaptics is part of the universe package as far as I know. So you need to activate universe: sudo add-apt-repository universe sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install synaptic I hope this works too on Kubuntu

How to make my package updatable via update manager? How I can make my software installable via apt-get? I want to keep source on my server. For both of these things, you'll need to create a repository to host your package, so that it can be downloaded. The easiest way to do this is to create a PPA on Launchpad.

Another way is download deb file from ubuntu mirror. wget http://download.nus.edu.sg/mirror/ubuntu/pool/universe/s/software-center/software-center_16.01+16.04.20160420_all.deb . then sudo dpkg -i software-center_16.01+16.04.20160420_all.deb It may ask for the dependencies just install packages that it needed before install package using dpkg.

I believe the Ubuntu Software Centre was replaced by the GNOME Software Centre in the new Ubuntu update. To install the new GNOME software centre try the following commands: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-desktop/gnome-software sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install gnome-software packagekit

You can get back the Ubuntu desktop with sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop From thereon it should be easy to re-install all the other lost packages. If you're looking for a list of all the (accidentally) uninstalled packages, you can find them in /var/log/apt/history.log.
