Add/Remove Crashes


When gnome-app-install is type on the command line, I'm getting this kind of error and the program crashes. It crashes even when I run it through GUI (Applications -> Add/Remove Applications). The program still crashes after doing, "apt-get update" and "apt-get upgrade". I tried turning off the computer and restarting the xserver, but it would still crash.

I would appreciate any comment regarding issue.

Code:
Introspect error: The name org.freedesktop.AppInstall was not provided by any .service files
no listening object (The name org.freedesktop.AppInstall was not provided by any .service files) 

** (gnome-app-install:4971): WARNING **: return value of custom widget handler was not a GtkWidget
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/gnome-app-install", line 141, in ?
    sys.argv, mime_search=msi)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/AppInstall/AppInstall.py", line 230, in __init__
    self.updateCache(filter_to_restore)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/AppInstall/AppInstall.py", line 741, in updateCache
    progress, filter)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/AppInstall/Menu.py", line 93, in __init__
    self.pickle = cPickle.load(open("%s/menu.p" % cachedir))
ValueError: insecure string pickle

Can you go to Ubuntu's launchpad at https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...-install/+bugs and report it there as a defect/bug please? Can you also install (via apt-get on the command line) the debug information (using info from https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingProgramCrash) for gnome-app-install, and try it again. The top line of that stack trace is missing some detail.

Thanks,
Danny
