Software Center crashes when uninstalling after installing

Bug Description

The Software Center tends to crash when uninstalling an app after installing the same app not too long before deciding to uninstall. This happens almost every time on my computer, and it gets very annoying and tends to break package links and my system overall. I've tried reinstalling Ubuntu GNOME, but the exact same problem always occurs.

The same problem even happens sometimes when I'm installing a large package file or lots of apps at once.
This can be a serious problem for users and future releases. A fix needs to be made and pushed out immediately.

Attached is a system report and specs with benchmarking results automated in HardInfo.
