Hi mpt! Can you perhaps attach the /usr/share/app-install/desktop/software-center.menu file? Thanks.

This fix is wrong. The code block implemented as a fix was put after an exit 0, and will never be executed.

Here is a patch to correct the fix.

Note that this will actually slow down the update so to keep the semantic of the comment (to only run it on a fresh install of -s-c) you may need to change:
- if [ "$1" = "configure" ]; then
+ if [ "$1" = "configure" ] && [ -z "$2" ]; then

The attachment "moving_exit_0.patch" seems to be a patch. If it isn't, please remove the "patch" flag from the attachment, remove the "patch" tag, and if you are a member of the ~ubuntu-reviewers, unsubscribe the team.
