Can't start Software Manager (Linux Mint 11)


So yeah, the thread title says pretty much everything. I don't know when it stopped working, but when I click on in using the MintMenu, nothing happens. The process appears in System Monitor as a Zombie, under Memory shows N/A and under Waiting Channel it shows "do_exit".

Launching mintinstall from the terminal displays the following:

Code:
/usr/lib/linuxmint/mintInstall/mintinstall.py:250: SyntaxWarning: import * only allowed at module level
  def get_status_description(self, transaction):
/usr/lib/linuxmint/mintInstall/mintinstall.py:258: SyntaxWarning: import * only allowed at module level
  def get_role_description(self, transaction):
add_categories took 1.845 ms
build_matched_packages took 0.251 ms
4822
add_packages took 3458.128 ms
add_reviews took 0.064 ms
/usr/lib/linuxmint/mintInstall/mintinstall.py:525: Warning: g_object_set_qdata: assertion `G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed
  wTree.get_widget("main_window").show_all()
__init__ took 3715.073 ms
g_dbus_connection_real_closed: Remote peer vanished with error: Underlying GIOStream returned 0 bytes on an async read (g-io-error-quark, 0). Exiting.
Terminated
Right after the line that says 4822 the intro "Gathering information..." splash screen appears, and then it disappears and nothing else happens.

I have removed and re-installed mintinstall using "apt-get remove mintinstall" and apt-get "install mintinstall" commands, but the problem remains.

Any help would be appreciated,
Cheers
