Great idea. You may want to send one to the second poster as well. If you find a solution, please do come back on and post it so that folk reading this thread in the future will be able to see that solution. Welcome to LQ, by the way.

I am having the same issue in Kali 2019.1
Software will message every day that there are new updates for Kali, then not load.
When I open manually it freezes on "software catalog is being loaded".

Often this is working, but this time it is not:

packagekit.service - PackageKit Daemon
Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/packagekit.service; static; vendor preset
Active: failed (Result: signal) since Fri 2019-03-08 10:27:11 PST; 11min ago
Process: 1169 ExecStart=/usr/lib/packagekit/packagekitd (code=killed, signal=A
Main PID: 1169 (code=killed, signal=ABRT)

I suspect it could be part of the issue.



This is a recent issue, as it was working before.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


*edit* after I apt update, apt upgrade, apt distro-upgrade, software messages me about how the OS was upgraded, and when I click on software, it opens in that instance.
Once I close and restart it, it freezes again. Very strange.

I use Kali every day at work and didn't know there was a "software center"...I don't care about the kali interface though, I use the tools only and apt suffices for me for additional installs or updates. I do wish kali would ditch that horror that is gnome though - nicely organized set of pen test tools then they slap that crap-fest UI on it.

I do not believe is is the same as the Ubuntu/Debian "Software Center".

I did not install this myself, it came with Kali. You do not have this?

I don't use any of the UI features of kali, other than the application folders/groups. I do all updates and installs via an xterm and use what ever app I need from typically, the web application group.

From the screenshot, this looks like the software center built into gnome. If I had a choice at work, I would not use this version of Kali because I can't stand gnome. I personally prefer the lxde version of Kali, but gnome is what my company gives me so it's what I have to work with.
