Software Manager does not start. Update Manager starts. See below:

You might try the solution here, can't say if it will work though:

Edit:

Maybe remove & reinstall Software Manager:

sudo apt remove --purge mintinstall

sudo apt install mintinstall

mintinstall

Hello, pema5004.

Which Linux Mint version precisely are you using? Plus, is it 32-bit or 64-bit?
Have you ever been able to launch Software Manager successfully?
Assuming that Software Manager worked before, the next question will be: after which change did it stop working?

Best regards,
Karl

Hello Karl,
Will it be possible to remove SM and reinstall again?

Possible yes (see my previous post), whether it will fix the problem, I dunno. Answer Karl's questions & wait for his next post.
