Ubuntu – System Settings won’t open on Ubuntu 17.10


I upgraded from Ubuntu 16.04 to 17.10, via 17.04. After the upgrade, I cannot access the system settings window. When I try to open it through the terminal, this is the error produced.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

You can try to reinstall gnome-control-center from terminal:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install --reinstall gnome-control-center
