Bug Description

Binary package hint: software-center

Ubuntu release (Maverick Meerkat) 10.10

I expected the Ubuntu Software Centre to install google Chrome.

I have tried other installs (different programs), and they did not work also.

Hi William! Thanks for your bug report. It would seem that apt-get is running, which means that software-center must wait for apt-get to exit before it can start installing applications itself. Could you please check whether waiting for apt-get to exit, or - if you think apt-get isn't running - restarting your computer resolves this issue? Thanks again for your help!

Thanks for inquiring,
Sometimes when I restart the computer the message goes away.
