Add/Remove Applications Shows No Applications

It's not often that I use this feature, but this morning when I tried, It would not show any applications.

After a little bit of searching online, I found out that many people have had this problem after installing Adobe Air. I am not quite sure on why this is, so if anyone does, please do share with us!

To resolve this problem, re-installing the Add / Remove application will do the trick. To do this, run the following command into the terminal:
sudo apt-get --reinstall install gnome-app-install


  1. Worked like a charm. Thank you.

  2. I hit this too - and it worked for me. Thanks!
