  • I found the solution for this, you can simply stop the Network Manger and everything will run great including Ubuntu Software Center! stop it by run this commend in the terminal:

    sudo stop network-manager

    you can bring it back by restart your computer or simply run this:

    sudo start network-manager

    that's it how easy fix, but hard to get the right answer nowadays!
