Software Center opens for a few seconds and then closes. Here is the output when opened from Terminal:

I'm an Ubuntu newbie, so any help is appreciated. Thanks.

  • Maybe some hints from askubuntu.com/questions/128244/… can help you. Also look at related topics. – drewpts Mar 29 '15 at 1:20
  • I tried the suggestions from both questions, to no avail. I'll look into similar questions/answers. Thanks! – Preston Ellis Mar 29 '15 at 1:47
  • @PrestonEllis: Please mention in your question, that those questions don't seem to apply to you. – David Foerster Mar 30 '15 at 0:19
