  • Just to be clear, you want to do this by using only the Software Center and not by using the command line with something simple like dpkg --get-selections | grep "\sinstall" | awk ' { print $1 } '> ~/Desktop/installed-software.txt? In other words, you want a fix to get the Software Center to work as it should? – DK Bose Dec 1 at 1:54
