Can't uncheck proposed or usupported boxes in Kubuntu updates sorftware sources

Bug Description

Other people having a similar problem:

In KPackageKit I can't uncheck the 'Proposed updates' or the 'Unsupported updates' boxes in the 'Kubuntu updates' section of the 'Updates' tab of the 'Software Sources' window (brought up by clicking on the 'Edit Origins' button in the 'Settings' tab of 'KPackageKit').

A workaround is to use the gtk version of software-properties. On the same screen, the boxes CAN be unchecked, and the package can then be uninstalled.

I'm using 64-bit Kubuntu 11.04 if that helps, though I think the bug report should include those details.

Seems like you now need to pass instead of template to disable_child_source()

Hello Rob, or anyone else affected,

Accepted software-properties into oneiric-proposed, the package will build now and be available in a few hours. Please test and give feedback here. See for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you in advance!

Works for me.
Using software properties (kde) I enabled proposed updates with the checkbox.
I checked I was still unable to uncheck it. (the bug WAS still there)
I found the appropriate proposed update and installed it.
Now I am able to uncheck the box - it seems to have been fixed.

Thank you!
