'Search for packages containing this document.' feature does not work

Bug Description

When a document isn't found, there is a link of "Search for packages containing this document.". Clicking that, however, says:

>Installing packages by files isn't supported
>This method hasn't yet been implemented.

If the link is left in the final release, it'll make the release look unfinished.

To clarify, the message in the original bug report is if PackageKit was installed. Otherwise, the error message is "You do not have PackageKit. Package install links require PackageKit."

Since Ubuntu's PackageKit doesn't support the org.freedesktop.PackageKit.Modify.InstallProvideFiles method and since Ubuntu doesn't use PackageKit, this feature should be disabled or ported to work with aptdaemon or whatever also.
