Software center has disappeared

I'm an Ubuntu newbie. Have already used software cenetr to install a few stuff, but this week I went looking for it and can't find the program anywhere :-/ I'm sure I must be doing something wrong but can't figure out what it is. Can't find a program listing in Ubuntu. Software Center is not in the applications menu and I have no idea where else to look. Anyone can help please...?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • Press Win key (or called as Super key in linux) in keyboard to bring up dash, and search for software center. Click on it to launch.

  • Alternatively press Alt + F2 and type in software-center and press enter.

  • If software center is removed somehow, enter following in terminal to install it.

    sudo apt-get install software-center

Once launched, go to dash (the panel on left side), right click on icon of software center and select Lock to launcher.
