The title says already everything. I upgraded without problems from 15.10 to 16.04 LTS, the icon for Ubuntu Software remained the same, if i open it i get the new GNOME version, but when i search for some apps (like GIMP, or VLC Player) i get "no application found".

Strange, isn't it ?

  • Nothing strange in Ubuntu new verion bugs. There hasn't been an update that is not bugged in some way or another. In my case I don't see any software at all. I still have software center tough, which is strange by itself also.

I had the same problem. I got it working by changing the language of the system into English. I think the problem was that the programme descriptions are not available in my language.

  • english is already the language of the system
