Recently I removed python3.5 and installed python3.6 using conda. Now terminal doesn't start and I can see a red error button at top right corner that says

A Problem occurred when checking for the updates

How can I fix it?

  • check if there are other terminals such as xterm – kenn May 26 '18 at 14:57
  • xterm is there but how to make terminal appear? – Manzurul Hoque Rumi May 26 '18 at 14:59

    @kenn nope. This is caused by deleting the system default python, which is a dependency of gnome-terminal and a whole bunch of other important stuff. Removing the pre-installed python is a really easy way to wreck Ubuntu – Zanna May 26 '18 at 15:06

    I am using Ubuntu 17.04. I installed python3.6 again but is not working – Manzurul Hoque Rumi May 26 '18 at 15:14

    17.04 is unsupported, so you need to upgrade to fix any package management issue - see How to install software or upgrade from an old unsupported release? – Zanna May 26 '18 at 15:18
