imagemagick may be a dependency for other pieces of software run apt-cache showpkg imagemagick to see what packages depend on imagemagick to run However if you want to force a removal, this may cause unintended consequences! run sudo dpkg --purge --force-all imagemagick


2

You can do this in a terminal window sudo apt remove --purge imagemagick But doing it you will remove also other software that you may need, like parts of the printing system. My recomendation? don't remove image magic

Is there a fix for this yet? It's a bit of an inconvenience.

It seems that the xenial package has been deleted: http://ppa.launchpad.net/fossfreedom/rhythmbox/ubuntu/dists/ http://www.ubuntuupdates.org/package/core/xenial/universe/proposed/rhythmbox

When installing from a .deb file, dependencies do not get automatically installed as well, as would be the case if Hamachi were a complete package. However, it is easy to install the dependency yourself in this case. Open a terminal and do sudo apt-get install lsb-core Then retry installing from the .deb file.

Try installing the old software-center from the commandline: sudo apt install software-center Or try installing synaptic sudo apt install synaptic

Remove the old version after upgrade When you upgrade from previous Ubuntu versions, the "old" Software-center is not removed it seems. Since it is replaced by the new Software-center, you can remove it by running the command: sudo apt-get remove software-center This will not remove the new software-center, since it has a different package name. If the ...

Just had this problem after using bleachbit to cleanup the system on moving from the beta to the official release. Cleaning out all the cache data also blanked out the software center (re:user533424 above). It seems to "magically" reappear by anything that regenerates this data. So... settings>region languages> ... and changing or reinstalling your ...

Yes, it seems to be a language configuration issue. Ridiculously impossible out-of-the-box glitch, yet there it is in an LTS release. :\ Even if your system is in English already, re-select it in System Settings > Language Support, re-apply system-wide, and reboot. Now the new app store actually functions -- yes, the bloody app store, the most important ...

Cancellation isn't supported now. It's a pending feature request on GNOME's bug tracker (with nothing related on Launchpad). There's no opposition to it (but then again, there's not much activity at all related to that request). Even if it does get implemented in a later version, I'm not sure the feature will be backported to Ubuntu 16.04. Consider filing ...

It works for me. Change Language Support > Regional Formats to English(United States), then reboot your computer. Software center works properly now.

go to ubuntu software center and search for "gdebi" or you can do sudo apt-get install gdebi after installing it, find the .deb package you wish to install, right click it, choose properties, and find the tab that says something like "open with" after finding it, choose gdbi and select "set as default". you may then close the menus and double click the .deb ...

If you want to install programs via .deb files, I suggest to use Gdebi. It's a lightweight application that is better at installing .deb packages, and is quicker as well. If there are dependencies, it notifies that as well. In the terminal, type: sudo apt install gdebi You can right click on .deb file and select to open it with Gdebi. If you like Gdeb, ...

No. Why? Snaps. There are two key points here. This paragraph from the announcement of inclusion of snaps in 16.04: Developers of paid apps have often been the most frustrated with having to manage dependencies and compatibility with various libraries, especially on older releases of Ubuntu. For this reason these applications are going to be ...

This actually started working on its own. I have no idea why, it just started working after two reboots.

It seems that we are all affected by https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-software/+bug/1573206. Unfortunately there is no other solution than using another package manager to install these packages.

Sorry, but apparently I am not allowed to comment just yet. I followed the CL instructions posted by user533424 and it did fix Software Center, but I swear my system is now about three times slower after I reboot. Just a home user, not a geek, so don't know if that is even possible, but it seems real. Any ideas?

Yep, the Software Center is seriously broken. When you click on Categories you just get blank boxes with ....... in them.

As you mention, this is a bug which affects lots of people. Add that it affects you on the launchpad page if you wish. So first - how to install things? Method 1 - alternative GUI GDebi is a package installer like the software centre, except it only handles DEB files - it's not an app store. You can install GDebi with the software centre as it is in the ...

I think this has to do with the /var/cache directory, at least that is what I suspect based on my own experience. Workaround that worked for me: sudo apt purge gnome-software ubuntu-software sudo apt autoremove sudo apt install gnome-software ubuntu-software

There is no supertux-stable in 16.04. There's just supertux. From the package index: Package supertux xenial (games): Classic 2D jump 'n run sidescroller with Tux [universe] 0.4.0-1: amd64 arm64 armhf i386 powerpc ppc64el s390x

If you have upgraded you should defacto have both software centres (see picture - the one on which the arrow points is what you want)

You can easily remove Ubuntu Software Center manually and install Ubuntu Software instead. Press CTRL+ALT+T to open a terminal and execute the following commands: sudo apt remove software-center sudo apt install ubuntu-software

If you need to install a software you have two options using Software Center using terminal If you are facing some problem with first method you can go for second method. Add PPA using following command sudo add-apt-repository ppa:<ppa_name> If the above command does not work, try following command sudo -E add-apt-repository ...

If you need to install software that is not in the repositories, and the Software Center is not working, there is an alternative but it requires the terminal. You must first navigate to the folder where you downloaded the debian package, which is usually in the 'Downloads' folder. You can open the terminal from that folder by right-clicking and pressing ...

The new software center was a mess for the first couple of hours, and this faulty version doesn't seem to refresh itself while it keeps running in the background even after you've closed the window. You can force quit it by invoking killall gnome-software When you start the software center again it should update and look like a proper software center. ...

I had the same problem after upgrading to 16.04. I had previously disabled IBus when I was running <=15.10 due to an issue with the Jetbrains Pycharm IDE. Renabling IBus fixed the issue with Gnome Software for me. Try opening your system Settings ­> Language Support and ensuring the Keyboard input method at the bottom of the page is set to ibus.

Change the Download from server in Software & Updates. I had mine set on to a nearby Swedish one (which maybe itself has not updated yet). I changed to a more official looking UK server and Ubuntu software is now working.

I got my software center working by changing the language into English. But I can see yours is already in English, so that will probably not help you...

I had the same problem. I got it working by changing the language of the system into English. I think the problem was that the programme descriptions are not available in my language.

I also had this problem, did some searching and found this. It fixes the issue for me no longer getting double letters Install ibus-gtk In the terminal do sudo apt-get install ibus-gtk ibus-gtk3 Reboot. (Does not work until rebooted) Should work now!

EDIT: Whoops, posted on wrong question. Got here trying to remove the Amazon app in 16.04. Cross linking to How to remove the Unity Amazon package in 16.04? If you want to remove all of them and the generic Browser app, try this. Open the Ubuntu Software app, find the "Browser" app and click remove.

You don't have any software sources configured, which means something went wrong with your installation. As there may be more problems I'd install the system again. Make sure you use an official up-to-date Xubuntu image. If you want to try to repair your system you can use for example https://repogen.simplylinux.ch/ to create a new sources.list After ...

This is bug #1573026. Make sure you click the "this affects me too". This bug has now been fixed upstream. Hopefully an update will be issued promptly. What are the workarounds? You can use the GDebi package manager, available in the software centre or with sudo apt-get install gdebi via the command line. Then, to install the package, open GDebi and ...

All .deb files which you manually install are considered to come from 'third party' locations where the system cannot verify the license on the software. The Google Chrome installer as such originates from Google, a third party, and not the Ubuntu repositories - the warning message here indicates this, but since it can't verify the license terms, it also ...

If you did a clean installation of 16.04, then you won't find Ubuntu Software center. It was replaced by GNOME’s Software. http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2015/11/the-ubuntu-software-centre-is-being-replace-in-16-04-lts

the Ubuntu Software Center on my PC is also showing "No application data found" but that appeared right after I was mounting /var/cache as tmpfs. I've experienced this issue with previous versions of the Ubuntu Software Center as well and therefore decided not to use a tmpfs for /var/cache any longer but I also couldn't figure out how to restore those ...

Try to download and install the old Software Center from the new Software Center. Just type in the name in the new Software Center, find it and use it.

You can browse what is in the store using uApp Explorer. As far as "legacy" X11 desktop apps, the BQ M10 includes (as of OTA 10.1) a preview version of libertine and a container that includes LibreOffice, Gedit, Firefox, GIMP, and XChat-GNOME. There isn't a "supported" way to add your own X apps yet; I believe it is on the roadmap for OTA 11 at the end of ...

Press the super/ windows button on keyboard and search in the search bar shown. More over you can filter using the options at the bottom of page. Also click the ubuntu icon present on the taskbar on left of the screen and search on the popped up window/screen.

You can open the program from the terminal by typing its name, eg gimp Ta-da! If you do this for a program you haven't installed, you will get a message saying how to install it, if it's in the repositories. As pointed out by Tejas Kale, if this doesn't work, the program might have a different name and you can try pressing tab after the first few letters ...

It is by no means a ridiculous question. By the time an Ubuntu distribution is available, many developers have already released a newer version of their package. If you want to stay on top of the latest glogg release, compiling it from source appears to be the only option. However, it looks pretty straightforward. Download the zip file and enter the commands ...
