So, I have been using Elementary OS for a while now without any problems. However, when I logged on today I wanted to download an app from the appcenter, but when I tried to search it's name in the searchbar the appcenter window just closed. Now I can't type more than one character into the searchbar without it crashing and cannot open any of the category tabs. What is going on?

PS: Running it via the terminal gives

[INFO 15:40:53.598248] Application.vala:155: App Center version: 0.1.2
[INFO 15:40:53.598292] Application.vala:157: Kernel version: 4.4.0-51-generic
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
  • Seeing a similar issue. Running appcenter from command prompt yields "Client.vala:241: The package id's '' are not valid" and app crashes when trying to search. – Paritosh Nov 29 '16 at 19:55
  • I have the same issue. Maybe they should fix this. – Max Nov 29 '16 at 21:27
