I published my commercial software in Ubuntu Software Center already , the status has changed to 'Published' , but when I updated my software catalog by apt-get update, and tried to search for my application , I got no record found.

Am I wrong here ?


It's here

Edit you question to include the name of the software and I'll see if it shows up for me...if you want. The fellows that know for sure the roll-out time for this type of thing are usually on during the day US time. – RobotHumans Mar 17 '12 at 6:21
@aking1012 , updated , can you check if it appears in software-center it's available for 11.10 – warl0ck Mar 17 '12 at 10:28
Any updates or new info? I'm not seeing Cobra in the USC... @DavidPlanella, do you have any thoughts on this? – Jjed Mar 27 '12 at 16:35

I think it should roll out immediately. That said, the Software Center uses an internal database for its commercial apps catalogue—not apt-get—and only updates it periodically. The app may take awhile to appear to clients.

You can force the Software Center to update its catalogue now with sudo update-software-center.
