Software catalog update was successful.

That is what i got when reinstalling my software center. I tried to reinstall it after there was a problem doing installations via it. Now, this came, and well, what is the next step to do in order to get it work again? Its boring to always have to use the terminal for installations.

This is the terminal output when attempting to install Audacity in my software center: http://pastebin.com/vKc2EXG0
