The errors seem to be caused due to errors in the software-center cache. Delete the cache and try again. To do this, navigate to the cache folder - cd ~/.cache Remove the software center cache folder - rm -r software-center

I was going to say "sudo?" (but I think Software Center can sudo itself...) But what's with this error SystemError: E:Opening /etc/apt/sources.list - ifstream::ifstream (13: Permission denied) Is your /etc/apt/sources.list not readable or something? Did you do something to change your software sources? That might be the problem, unless Software Center ...

I'm pretty sure the problem is you've added an incompatible source or text was added to your /ect/apt/sources.list.d/ directory. It's causing problems updating your software repo cache. Remove the added file/sources, then you should be able to update (apt-get update) normally. The error sounds like there's some type of HTML on line 1 of ...

Had the same problem and discovered this article: https://sites.google.com/site/installationubuntu/home/ubuntu-11-10-oneiric-ocelot/install-a-deb-without-ubuntu-software-centre It tells you to install the gdebi package: sudo apt-get install gdebi Then you can right click on the .deb file, select 'open with' and select gdebi instead of the software center. ...

You can see the spike in CPU usage when I opened the Software Center (searching from Dash) GUI. The tallest spike is from the moment I clicked on it to open it, then it becomes normal. I also checked via System Monitor (after seeing your image). It works according to spikes: gets around 300+ MiB in first then goes to 200-ish MiB (near to compiz, much less ...

I suggest you report it to developers. Meanwhile if you you want an alternative, Deepin Software Centre is nice.

Assuming you are using regular ubuntu with the unity desktop: yes, it is possible. If you are using gnome-shell desktop instead of unity, you will run into dependency issues. Go ahead and uninstall it if you are using just the regular "Ubuntu Desktop" and are not using the gnome desktop otherwise known as "Ubuntu Gnome". Ubuntu Gnome looks like this ...

Thanks @ Eliah Kagan, running $ sudo apt-get update did turn up one error related to a missing public key from an update of QGIS [qgis.org] e.g. W: GPG error: http://qgis.org precise Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY BBA6491F47765B75 The solution was to run $ sudo apt-key adv ...

I would suggest to use dpkg from the command line (shell). The good thing about it is that it is already installed on your system, because apt-get is just an extension built around dpkg. apt-get handles checking for available packages, checking for updates, downloading the packages, but dpkg is the command that actually handles the package installs, removes, ...

The graphical way to remove repositories is: System Settings -> Software & Updates. Go to the "Other Software" tab. I'm guessing you will want to uncheck everything on that list, but at least the "Independent" repo. You can get to the same screen by running sudo software-properties-gtk, as you tried. That is a python traceback, but I do not know ...

Once you have installed a package, it is possible to see what files that package has installed on your system. You can do this: with the graphical synaptic package manager: install synaptic (it is not installed by default). Use apt-get install synaptic, or install it through Software Center. I like it better than the Software Center, but YMMV. finding ...

I suspect I know why you are having difficulty installing anything directly from the software center. I can only assume that you are operating from a standard, which is to say, not administrator account. This often happens when someone trusts their relative or friend to install Ubuntu for them, and that other person issues the newbie a ...

Here's how I did it: Install java 8 separately, without messing with system java: Download the latest jdk 8 .tar.gz from Oracle. Extract the .tar.gz to /opt/java: $ sudo mkdir -p /opt/java $ sudo tar -C /opt/java -xzf Downloads/jdk-8[tab] Create a link to the java executable: $ sudo ln -s /opt/java/jdk1.8[tab]/bin/java /usr/local/bin/java8 ...

I checked that repository and noted that the install file is not executable. Thus you must first take care of that: chmod +x ./mn-ccnx/util/install.sh And then you can run the script: ./mn-ccnx/util/install.sh You will be prompted for your password for the changes required to the system.

You can install downloaded deb packages using dpkg. In fact, the software center acts as a front-end to dpkg while installing deb packages. To install, type the command - sudo dpkg -i /path/to/file.deb where 'file' is the name of the deb package.

The generic command 'python' and shebang '#!/usr/bin/python' currently map to Python 2. That will change to Python 3 in a future version of Ubuntu. Do NOT change that mapping yourself - it will break many essential system applications and services in 14.04 that still use Python 2, and won't work with Python 3 yet. Undo whatever you did to set Python 3.4 as ...

Removing the file ~/.config/autostart/Feem.desktop should prevent it from running on startup. This will not uninstall the application. To uninstall, you'll have to manually remove the files. You can't use apt-get or the software centre, because Feem was not installed by Ubuntu's package manager. I've looked at the installer code, and I can see three ...

Looks like a script or a command went haywire and appended -src to a lot of debs. You'll have to delete a lot of lines to fix that. Or, to undo this damage, try this command: sed '62,$s/deb-src/deb/' /etc/apt/sources.list Inspect the output and ensure that: -src-src is not seen in any uncommented line (those not beginning with #). A line with deb is ...

Access prompt is an integral part of the operating system with which you grant programs the permission to install software or change your system. It is not a hacking tool and does not give your passwords away.

I'd expect that review from "Ray" could be a false-positive from an over-zealous heuristic anti-virus scanner (likely run from windows). There are lots of anti-virus programs of wildly varying quality, I've read that some of them will even pop up false positives just to make it look like they're actually doing something. Lots of malware disguises itself as ...

I couldn't find another way to locate the review rather than hack into the raw review api for the ruby package.

APT, or Advanced Packaging Tool, basically resolves dependency problems and retrieves the requested packages. It works with dpkg, another tool, which handles the actual installation and removal of packages (applications). APT is very powerful, and is primarily used on the command line (console/terminal). There are, however, many GUI/Graphical tools to let ...
