Without knowing what your current version of Xubuntu and mythtv is, it 
is difficult to be explicit in an answer, so the following is general.

I presume you did an in-place Xubuntu upgrade, what is your current 
version of Xubuntu (lsb_release -a command in a terminal session), also 
what was the previous version of Xubuntu?

The following command in a terminal session will tell you about 
  apt-cache policy mythbuntu-control-centre

If it is available, just install it (sudo apt-get install 

You could change the Repositories settings using Synaptic, or just add 
the appropriate mythtv ppa using information from 
e.g. for mythtv 0.28

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mythbuntu/0.28
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

Note if your version of mythtv is 0.27 you will need to upgrade to 
atleast 0.28, or even 29 (just released).  note for mythtv 29 use 
Also when upgrading from one mythtv version to another replace sudo 
apt-get upgrade with sudo apt-get dist-upgrade, I also recommend a 
reboot after this.
