The "Software Boutique" hangs during startup.

Asked by Jack Hunter on 2018-11-07

Running Ubuntu 18.04 on an older HP laptop. After some updates were installed, Software Boutique hangs after starting and will not continue. I reinstalled 18.04 and all was fine until I installed several updates then the problem returned. Any suggestions as to where to look.
