I'm using Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS. I need to install pgAdminIII from ubuntu software-center but the software-center doesn't open this morning. What should I do to fix this?


Try to reinstall the software center

sudo apt-get install --reinstall software-center

or if you're running Gnome

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-desktop/gnome-software
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install  --reinstall gnome-software packagekit

If it's still now working then type




And update your question with output
