Bug Description

Error: Software center generates markup error and does not display "Updates" field

Steps to replicate:
1) launch SC from terminal
2) search "system-config-date"
3) open the result by clicking "More"
4) note incorrect "Updates" field
5) see following error in terminal:

(software-center:4152): Gtk-WARNING **: Failed to set text from markup due to error parsing markup: Error on line 1: Entity did not end with a semicolon; most likely you used an ampersand character without intending to start an entity - escape ampersand as &

What should happen: markup is escaped and content is displayed
what happens: errors on markup and does not display correctly

Original Description:

"browse to system-config-date and note that the updates text is not displayed and there is an error in the terminal"

For me, there is just no text after "Update"; it's blank. The other three fields do have text.
