Bug Description

Binary package hint: software-center

I want to install the sun-java-6 plugin. It appears at the software center, but the only option
is "update now". This option does not install it nor makes it available to be installed. There
is no instruction on how to install it. This also occurs for other applications. The attached
screenshot shows what is actually seen.

Also it is very unnatural in the software center this behavior of not providing the option
to install some application while the application is in the catalog. One updates something,
it is not clear what, and then the software center goes back to the main menu without
any further information. It is not clear what has happened and that one should (when
possible), search for the application again and then install it.
