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:
/usr/lib/linuxmint/mintInstall/mintinstall.py:250: SyntaxWarning: import * only allowed at module level
def get_status_description(self, transaction):

__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.
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,
