Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm sure to have correctly purged a certaing ppa: it doesn't anymore appear in sources.list nor in sources.list.d folder.

It doesn't even appear in Synaptic's repository list, but if I open the "Origin" section, it is always there, with the full list of its packages (all not installed, of course).

Have you tried running a sudo apt-get update or doing a package information reload (Button on the top left) in Synaptic? –  Richard Feb 12 '13 at 14:58
    
of course... I thought it was obvious... –  jasmines Feb 12 '13 at 15:02

I believe this is by design. The origin section allows you to view packages by repository (origin).

Just because you are no longer using it doesn't mean it doesn't exist....
