Is this on Crimson or Byzantium?

At a minimum, make sure you do sudo apt update before attempting to install anything.

Also, if all you lost was the Software app, I am not sure that that is the correct package to install.

Ran this:
sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/*

sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade

Was then able to install gnome to restore the Software app…

What a weird little issue… But thank you guys for commenting on this!
