I have just updated my Ubuntu to 16.04. Everything is perfect as expected. The only thing is, the updated Ubuntu Software Center doesn't function.

What can I do?

  • It's just a lazy software, just like the old Software Center. The truth is it needs to read (or update) a pretty large database upon each start. Sure, that database could be optimized by eliminating the graphics & pictures, resulting in pretty dull simple text items. But no newbie could deal with such interface. It's the graphics loading what makes for the delay.

I had similar problem.Then I got solution by installing the previous Ubuntu Software Center. Open terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) then type following command and hit Enter.

    sudo apt install software-center

After installation, search for Ubuntu Software Center in dashbox using Super key. You can now install apps with ease.
