"W: GPG error: trusty InRelease: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY E131728675254D99

Two answers:

1. the apt-get commands needs an operation as first parameter, but "sudo apt-get --reinstall software-center" does not have one, I assume what you want is "sudo apt-get install --reinstall software-center"

2. NO_PUBKEY is an indication that you are missing a certain cryptographic key for verification. One possible solution is downloading and installing the key with
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver --recv-keys E131728675254D99

You mistyped the first command, there has to be a space character between "install" and "--reinstall".
You better use copy and paste instead of trying to retype the commands.

And for the second command please provide the full output (including the command that you have) that we can verify what went wrong.

Can you help with this problem?

Provide an answer of your own, or ask Rufaida Ismael for more information if necessary.
