Problem can be solved by installing package apt-xapian-index.
In a terminal, type:
sudo apt-get install apt-xapian-index

The auto search is disabled deliberately as it can cause users on low specification machines to think that their computer has frozen. As you see above, you can add it. I will add a further note to the documentation area about it.

Changed in lubuntu-meta (Ubuntu):
status: New → Invalid
