1. Navigate to "Get Software" > "Fonts" > "Japanese OpenType font set, IPAfont".
2. Choose "More Info".
3. Scroll to the bottom.

What you see: "Canonical does not provide updates for . Some updates may be provided by the Ubuntu community."
What you should see: "Canonical does not provide updates for Japanese OpenType font set, IPAfont. Some updates may be provided by the Ubuntu community."
