Right-click on the 'Software-Center' menu and click on 'Properties' then add 'gksudo' (w/o the single quote) to the beginning of the command:

gksudo ubuntu-software-center

Close.

HTH.

Also be sure to maximize the app window, or hit the restore button then maximize to see if the app is redrawn.

Can you help with this problem?
