I've got an installation of Ubuntu 18.04. It's a default, simple installation. It's been patched successfully using
sudo apt-get update,
sudo apt-get upgrade, and
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade -y.
I don't understand what the point of Software Center is. It's pinned to Favorites by default. When you search for something, Ubuntu's search suggests packages to install via Software Center...and yet...
- Software Center needs
sudocredentials to do anything.
- Software Center doesn't prompt the user for
sudo -y creds.
- Software Center always just tells me "You do not have permission to install software".
Clearly, just clicking on the icon for Software Center is not the right way to start Software Center. It seems like it could be a handy tool so...what is the right way to start Software Center? Is there any way to have it prompt you for
sudo -y credentials on start?
