This question already has an answer here:
- Software Center won't open at all 4 answers
Expected : When I click on Ubuntu Software icon in taskbar or dash, it should open the software center.
Actual : The loading cursor comes in for few seconds and nothing happens. No window. Nothing.
A process for
gnome-software is found in System Monitor though.
Tried : Re-installing
gnome-software-common. Doesn't solve the issue.
sudo apt-get --reinstall install gnome-software-common
gnome-software from terminal shows following output.
(gnome-software:11311): Gs-WARNING **: failed to open plugin /usr/lib/gs-plugins-9/libgs_plugin_xdg_app_reviews.so: /usr/lib/gs-plugins-9/libgs_plugin_xdg_app_reviews.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I found out that it was indeed reported but no solution to those reports too.
