Thanks for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. We appreciate the difficulties you are facing, but this appears to be a "regular" (non-security) bug. I have unmarked it as a security issue since this bug does not show evidence of allowing attackers to cross privilege boundaries nor directly cause loss of data/privacy. Please feel free to report any other bugs you may find.

Given this still seems to be a problem, given the number of duplicates found, have marked this as high.

  * softwarecenter/ui/gtk3/widgets/reviews.py:

      was previously not translatable. Thanks to David Planella

    - when adding a new database (e.g. on reinstall-previous purchases)
      trigger a "reopen" to ensure that the db docids are reinitialized

    - do not crash if a apt.Package.candidate has no url (LP: #819907)

  * softwarecenter/db/application.py,
    - display the correct license type for commercial apps as
      specified via the software-center-agent (LP: #864706)
