Bug Description

Bug Description:
If an app is installed on maverick the deb line in natty still shows maverick.

On my fresh natty install the deb lines for uplink is deb https://<user>:<passwordkey>@private-ppa.launchpad.net/commercial-ppa-uploaders/uplink/ubuntu maverick main #Added by software-center

This would mean any fixes specific to natty weren't picked up by the natty install as it is pulling in the maverick version.


64bit Natty

FF 4.0

Problem URL:

Steps To Reproduce:
1. open software-center add lines for previously purchased apps
2. open /etc/apt/sources.list.d/application_name check the contents of the file

Expected Result:
I expect to see my installed os version in the deb line in order to obtain the correct versions of the software.

software-center-agent was already updated to provide the supported distroseries as part of the fix for bug 917109 which was done to be able to fix the USC bug 833982 (which is quite related to this).

As a result, at least for precise, when the user views their previous purchases, they will only have an install button if their series is supported, in which case it is safe to replace the distroseries segment of the purchased deb_line with the current distroseries, afaict.
