Okay so i recently had some problems with ubuntu software centre where if i opened it from the dashboard it would open up, but only display a white screen. Nothing happened, so if i then clicked the 'x', it would ask me if i would like to force close the non responding software centre.
To find a solution i opened the software centre via a terminal and it seemed to work fine
But i needed it working normally and after lots of attempts i couldn't figure it out so decided to just un-install and reinstall it.
Uninstall is fine but now it's about reinstalling When i type into terminal
sudo apt-get install software-center
I get this back;
Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Package software-center is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source E: Package 'software-center' has no installation candidate
any ideas? Thanks :)
You need to type
sudo apt install gnome-software
to install software center.
