MY ANSWER

The first thing necessary and is probably the problem is you must run Update Manager to get everything up to speed and working. This is similar to like a first run of Windows like when you need to run Windows Updates to install Service Packs, possibly driver updates and so on.

Start Ubuntu. Click System > Update Manger.... You will see probably about a 250M size of Security Updates and Recommended Updates you need to apply FIRST before you will be able to use all the features. Most Likely Ubuntu Software Center is not going to work until the system is updated. It needs the additional packages applied to work.

Until you bring it up to speed, you will not get full functionality yet. It is just like getting a brand new Windows PC - you have to apply the Updates, bug fixes, Security Updates etc or it will not operate as expected.

Linux is even more easier and safer to use than Windows which I have been using ten years and now Linux for a couple years. Don't forget if you reinstall various versions anytime of Linux you MUST run the Update Manager and apply all to get it running.

HINT: The best edition of Ubuntu is the Ubuntu Linux 10.04 LTS (Long Term Support) A LTS version is most stable and secure and virtually bug free. I am using Ubuntu 10.10 which one consistent bug is prevalent - a mistaken error message with software installs, they actually did successfully install. You do not come into any of these quirks in a LTS release. Get Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and go to town after Updates. Easier to use than Windows. More safer, virtually no malware at all ! Ubuntu Linux has some of the best support for all connectivity - Dial Up, Broadband/DSL, Wireless. Ubuntu is most popular for good reason - it works on practically ALL computers.
