In Mint, you should use mintInstall and mintUpdate rather than the ubuntu software center.
However, if you really want to use the ubuntu software center, you could try "pkexec software-center" instead of gksudo.
Also, have you tried running it from terminal in order to see if any error messages come up then ?

Here's what I got:
pkexec software-center
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/software-center", line 33, in <module>
from gi.repository import Gtk
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/gi/importer.py", line 76, in load_module
dynamic_module._load()
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/gi/module.py", line 224, in _load
overrides_modules = __import__('gi.overrides', fromlist=[self._namespace])
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/gi/overrides/Gtk.py", line 1404, in <module>
raise RuntimeError("Gtk couldn't be initialized")
RuntimeError: Gtk couldn't be initialized

I'm running Mate, BTW.
