I'm experiencing the common Ubuntu Software crash. I've tried a number of solutions; none of have worked. Should I just never use this program? (This is a serious question; does it replicate certain command line functions that work more reliably?)
I'm not sure which log file to example, or where that log file would be; here's the tail of syslog after the crash:
May 22 23:51:22 evan-XPS-13-9350 org.gnome.Software: (gnome-software:10924): Gs-WARNING **: failed to call gs_plugin_refine_app on icons: Icon 'application-x-firmware' not present in theme (null) May 22 23:51:22 evan-XPS-13-9350 org.gnome.Software: (gnome-software:10924): GsPlugin-WARNING **: failed to load stock icon calibre: Icon 'calibre' not present in theme (null) May 22 23:51:23 evan-XPS-13-9350 kernel: [ 681.329109] pool: segfault at ffffffffffffffb8 ip 00007f60af18eb97 sp 00007f608ed91938 error 5 in libappstream-glib.so.8.0.6[7f60af172000+42000]
I have tried these...
...without any change in software behavior.
I am using 16.04 LTS on a Dell XPS13, configured to dual boot Ubuntu and Win10.
