Both of these shortcuts work for me in 13.10 and I have only the proposed packages installed.

Do dash appears when you pressing Super key?

No Dash doesn't appear for me but sometimes I see the Unity shortcuts overlay. Also I always press first the Super key and then Space.

Thank you for your bug report. Does it work in a guest session? Does it work if you do the key pressing slowly?

It also exists in Guest session.

The Super+Space shortcut doesn't work in my Guest session. No problems there with Shift+Super+Space.

I'm unable to use Super+Space and Shift+Super+Space on 14.04 with all updates installed.

Confirm the default shortcuts do nothing in daily images of Trusty.

Yesterday I've installed fresh Ubuntu 13.10 downloaded from official site a
few days ago.
On first boot Super+Space was working but after installing all updates and
reboot it this not work anymore.
13.10 has been released about 3 months ago and this bug is still there. How
it can be possible? It is very disturbing issue for me. Please make your
best to resolve it as soon as you can.

With best regards,

Yesterday I've installed fresh Ubuntu 13.10 downloaded from official site a few days ago.
On first boot Super+Space was working but after installing all updates and reboot it this not work anymore.

Keng-Yu Lin, I'm sorry!
We have discussed on bug 1218322 to open separate bug-reports for separate keys (see its description), so this bug is related to bug 1218322, not its duplicate.
