Ubuntu – Ubuntu 16.04 software center not working

16.04software installationsoftware-center

Just installed the UBUNTU 16.04 LTS. I just noticed that the software center is not working. I did installed the older version of it (sudo apt-get install software-center) but I want the new software center.

How can I install the new version of the software center?

Type the following in the terminal in order to update gnome-software, which should fix the problem:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install --only-upgrade gnome-software

You can also update using the graphical update manager, which will do the same thing.

(The version of gnome-software shipped with Ubuntu had a bug which meant that it sometimes wouldn't start, which was fixed in a update)
