We don't actually get version information from the server (see https://software-center.ubuntu.com/api/2.0/applications/en/ubuntu/natty/i386/).

On a side note, you can edit softwarecenter/distro/__init__.py: get_codename to always return natty if you want to test for purchase in oneiric. You then run software-center such that we generate a db, then you can edit the file back and the natty db will hang around due to a caching bug.
