The same thing happened here... I tried to open software centre and it just got crashed. It usually works ok and when I tried to open it again, it started working as normal.
I am using Ubuntu 13.04 with gnome-shell 3.8.2 with amd64 laptop. There was a problem with software center in gnome-shell 3.8.2. It was always crashing when one was trying to open it. Refer ( #1163886 software-center crashed with signal 5 with the GNOME3 PPA on 13.04 ) this bug. It was also affecting me, but with recent updates ( I don't know which were those), it started working again.
Now, I doubt about it's correction by the updates... This bug must be a duplicate of it. Thank you.

I have the same configuration (environment) as you have Kaivalya. I'm
glad to hear you have resolved your issue, however, I am still unable to
successfully execute the app. I've reinstalled it multiple times,
cleared cache, etc... However, as a work around, I use the synaptic
package manager, and any software i need to install, i just do it via
shell (terminal).

The irony of all of this is that while I can't execute the Ubuntu
Software Center, I can via wine run one of the most graphically taxing
games ever :D. Go figure :D.

Peace!
