My Ubuntu Software Center has been hanging on installation

So my USC has been hanging at 50% while installing matlab. I was wondering how to kill this process.

In addition to that, I was wondering how this matlab application on linux worked. Does it customize an already installed matlab to become unix compatible?

Thank you!

Something like
pkill matlab
ps ax | grep matlab
Then kill the process by it's PID.
