Tried the following but none of them worked:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install --reinstall software-center
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install python-simplejson

Would greatly apreciate it if the answer gets emailed to me <email address hidden>

What happens when you run 'software-center' in a terminal?

Samething happens! The application window pops up for one or two seconds than closes. In the terminal several lines of messages appear (probably too long to copy in this message box). Especially, this erros message is repeated 3 times:

AttributeError: 'ProgressBar' object has no attribute 'set_data'
