Software centre is not responding. Whenever I open it the screen becomes black and I cannot do any thing. Instead I have to force quit the application, please provide me a solution.
Try running a
sudo apt-get install software-center from a terminal to upgrade your version of software-center. Possibly there is a new version already that fixes this error.
If that does not help, try running
sudo software-center from a terminal and check the terminal output for any clues why it is not starting and possibly post the relevant output back here again.
