Hi Michael,

Are you running this from -proposed? I ran from trunk and don't get such a problem (branch code and run './software-center' from the root of the source tree.

Of course I should have said that I only see installed software when doing this.

I haven't tested trunk but am in oneiric, running the recently-released 4.1.6.

I also noticed when selecting one of this "not installed" package and clicking on "More info" s-c displays a 'Not found' page.

On a side note, I filed bug 800613 against Unity which also displays some of the applications as available for installation but are not. So that's probably something to do with the indexer.
