When I try to install any software from ubuntu software center it comes with error:

An unhandled error occured
There seems to be a programming error in aptdaemon. This is the software that allows you to install/remove software and to perform other package management related tasks.
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/aptdaemon/", line 961, in simulate
    trans.unauthenticated = self._simulate_helper(trans)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/aptdaemon/", line 1085, in _simulate_helper
    return depends, self._cache.required_download, \
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/apt/", line 226, in required_download
    pm.get_archives(fetcher, self._list, self._records)
SystemError: E:I wasn't able to locate file for the ttf-mscorefonts-installer package. This might mean you need to manually fix this package.

Please help me!
