I'm trying to install software center in Kali Linux. I have typed the following comment in my terminal it shows like this:
...

TERMINAL:

root@kali:~# apt-get install software-center
Reading package lists... Done

Building dependency tree

Reading state information... Done

Package software-center is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or

is only available from another source

E: Package 'software-center' has no installation candidate """
Please say a way to install software and other software!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

That means that you don’t have the appropriate repositories configured.

You need to add the necessary repositories by editing your /etc/apt/sources.list file.

You should have these repositories there.  If some of them is missing, just added and save the file:

deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali main non-free contrib
deb http://security.kali.org/kali-security kali/updates main contrib non-free

Then you need to update, and try the installation again:

apt-get update
apt-get install software-center

Let us know if this works.
