Bug Description

I'm unable to launch software-center, and this is the error I get:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/software-center", line 25, in <module>
    from gi.repository import Gtk, GObject
ImportError: No module named repository

It's the same issue with ubuntu-tweak as well:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/ubuntu-tweak", line 30, in <module>
    from gi.repository import GObject, Gdk, Gtk, Gio
ImportError: No module named repository

I've googled on this, and have tried every solution, but nothing has worked yet. Here are the modules I have installed / reinstalled / upgraded.

- python-gobject
- gir1.2-gtk-3.0
- PyGObject (via pip)

Please help. Thank you!
