Unable to install codecs with gstreamer-codec-install

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-codec-install

I tried to play an MKV file while missing a few codecs. Gstreamer-codec-install then launched and searched for codecs, found 3 (ffmpeg, bad and ugly). I pressed install, typed my superuser password, then a dialog showed up with the text "No packages installed. None of the selected packages were installed." When i try to close that window by pressing OK, the window remains. Have to close it by killing gstreamer-codec-install.

I have confirmed this on Maverick 10.10 Alpha3 while trying to install these codecs through rhythmbox. Had to reboot the box to get the windows to go away.
