    It seems none of the so-called software "stores" are really doing a good job of serving their "customers". The software store is seen by the big companies as another cash cow that can become a revenue stream for them with little effort or support put back into it. When that doesn't work out as they had planned, they abandon it.

    The Ubuntu Software Center is rubbish, just use Synaptic Package Manager.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install -y synaptic gdebi
    Or if you must have point and click, try Muon Discover.
