Canceling an installation in Software Center results in obtuse error

Bug Description

Binary package hint: software-center

When I cancel the installation of an application in Software Center, I get an error message stating "Failed to download repository information/check your internet connection." Obviously, the problem is not my Internet connection. I'd expect to either get no error at all, or something saying "Installation of application canceled". See attached screenshot for the error.

There are two errors here:
- download failed message
- canceling a transaction in the policykit dialog will result in a "daemon died" error much later
