Same here.

Fresh Beta1 install.

  When launching Software Sources from the Unity Dash, I get nothing, no
  error message.

  When trying to launch it from the CLI, I get this:

  $ software-properties-gtk 
  gpg: /tmp/tmpzr2tyb/trustdb.gpg: trustdb created
  Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "/usr/bin/software-properties-gtk", line 103, in <module>
      app = SoftwarePropertiesGtk(datadir=options.data_dir, options=options, file=file)
    File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/softwareproperties/gtk/SoftwarePropertiesGtk.py", line 179, in __init__
    File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/softwareproperties/gtk/SoftwarePropertiesGtk.py", line 1268, in show_drivers
      widget = Gtk.Label("{}: {}".format(self.devices[device]['vendor'], self.devices[device]['model']))
  KeyError: 'model'
