I am currently using Ubuntu 19.10 and trying to open 'additional drivers' results in the program crashing. When I start it from the terminal, I get the following traceback:
philip@philip-hp-pavilion:/usr/bin$ software-properties-gtk Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/software-properties-gtk", line 37, in from softwareproperties.gtk.SoftwarePropertiesGtk import SoftwarePropertiesGtk File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/softwareproperties/gtk/SoftwarePropertiesGtk.py", line 58, in from softwareproperties.SoftwareProperties import SoftwareProperties File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/softwareproperties/SoftwareProperties.py", line 64, in from . import shortcuts File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/softwareproperties/shortcuts.py", line 23, in _DEF_CODENAME = aptsources.distro.get_distro().codename File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/aptsources/distro.py", line 596, in get_distro is_like = os_result.get('ID_LIKE', ) AttributeError: 'list' object has no attribute 'get'
I sadly have no clue how it started (it did work a few days ago). I guess maybe something is using a wrong python, but have not used Linux for long enough to know how to fix the issue.
