Ubuntu Software Center

Hey all.
I am trying to get vim so when I open up the Ubuntu Software Center and type "gvim" it keeps on loading forever and doesn't get any results. This is true for everything... I can't search/install any programs because it never stops loading.. any idea why this is happening?

Are your repo's set up correctly? Just a loose thought because I had that way back when as well

Maybe this page can shed more light!

Good luck

I couldn't get the software sources page to open. Applications > software sources sent me straight to the software center which wouldn't stop loading

I ran this in the terminal:
kevin@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get update

Sorry, try again.
