The ubuntu softwear centre does not open.


Im using Ubuntu 11.04 with the unity display. I was installing a selection of updates and my system crashed. I left it for a bit to see if anything happend but it didnt. So i restarted my computer and the ubuntu softwear centre no longer works. It comes up with and error message saying "Reinstall the softwear centre" How do i do this.
