I have downloaded the update (desktop-file-utils) but it does not open in Software Center. It open Archive Manager now too.

You guys might want to consider that since .deb packages are already set to open in Archive Manager, applying an update won't change that. You can make .deb packages open in Software Center by right clicking a .deb package in Nautilus, clicking properties, going to the "Open With" tab, and choosing Ubuntu Software Center.
