    Well I was online when the errors occurred...lol was even reading the forums and trying to resolve it at the same time! I'm planning a dual boot this afternoon - so hopefully a clean install will fix the issues...

    Just a heads up, now if you install software-center you don't have to add it to the main menu it puts it in with the installation now so it's even quicker to install and start using.

    Applications >> System Tools >> Administration >> Software Center

    found a solution :

    1- gedit /usr/share/software-center/softwarecenter/distro/__init__.py
    2- Go to line 159
    3- Change { lsb_info["ID"] } To { "Debian" } #Note: Without copying brackets { }.
    Before: distro_id = lsb_info["ID"]
    After: distro_id = "Debian"
    4- Type in terminal: update-software-center
    5- Should It work Now.

    thanx to alm6iri

    It was showing....
    apt-get install software-center
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    Package software-center is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source

    Worth noting, for those on Kali Rolling, making changes in the /etc/apt/sources.list, can and will most likely cause you issues. The Kali rolling release is a completely different animal than previous releases. Kali Rolling, is a release that is constantly updated. The idea behind this is to ensure that users and developers have access to the latest patches and updates, as they are created, tested, and verified.

    Source: https://www.kali.org/news/kali-linux...dition-2016-1/

    These are the only sources you should have in you /etc/apt/sources.list if you want to avoid unnecessary issues:

    deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main contrib non-free
    # For source package access, uncomment the following line
    # deb-src http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main contrib non-free

    Source: http://docs.kali.org/general-use/kal...t-repositories

    That being said, Gnome Software is available in the correct Kali 2016.1 Rolling repositories:

    Code:
    apt-get install gnome-software
    as well as synaptic package manager:

    Code:
    apt-get install synaptic
    : ) Enjoy!
