Ubuntu Software Center not working; says the package catalog needs repair

It says the package catalog needs repair. I tried with this command "sudo apt-get install -f" But it says unable to correct dependencies. Why is that?

Try running sudo dpkg --configure -a from a Terminal.

I just had the same problem, this is what fixed it for me:

  • Open your terminal and write these lines:

    sudo ldconfig
    
    sudo apt-get check
    
    sudo apt-get update
    

    (Till this moment it kept giving me the same error)

    sudo apt-get -f upgrade --fix-missing
    

    (And after this ^ line, the problem was solved)
