I installed fresh Ubuntu 20.04. The Softwarecenter is not loading.

I did sudo apt-get update and `sudo apt-get upgrade.

This is how it looks if I open it:

Or like this if I try to install a program over a dev file:

Problem remains after restarts.

Any idea what is causing this?


Have you tried reinstalling the GNOME Software Center?

sudo apt-get remove gnome-software
sudo apt-get install gnome-software*
  • Ubuntu software and gnome software are two different programs. – schrodigerscatcuriosity Oct 2 '20 at 15:55
  • Not really. If they were the same software they should behave the same, wich they don't, and wouldn't be two different packages. I use 20.04 and had to replace US for GS. Uninstalling GS wouldn't make a difference, since what OP runs is US. – schrodigerscatcuriosity Oct 2 '20 at 16:12
