Still have effect of this bug.

I run 11.04 64 bit in my Virtual Machine for testing (last alpha with updates made my notebook scream and I had to reinstall Ubuntu 10.10). I made a small real install on my notebook and still have the problem after installing the latest patches and updates.

I will run some more tests later this evening.

Problem disappeard in my virtual machine. Only the error no need to install package remains, even when package is not installed at all (LibreOffice Base, LibreOffice productivity suite and several addons)

Hi Vincent, thanks for your note and for helping us to test. Please hold off testing just yet as the fix for this bug has actually not been released yet. The fix will be included in Software Center 3.1.21, which should be released in the next day or so I think. Please keep an eye out for it, and thanks again!
