Bug Description

If you search for a package on, you will not get results pertaining to Ubuntu 16.04. For example, I can't find "gnome-calendar":

The search results display different distributions on the side-bar, including old releases like Ubuntu 14.04, Ubuntu 13.10, Ubuntu 13.04, etc, but not the newer current LTS release Ubuntu 16.04, or the new release Ubuntu 16.10: needs to be updated to include packages for Ubuntu 16.04. and for Ubuntu 16.10.
