Update manager will always update the softwares to the version meant for your distro not any other (i.e for 11.04 not 11.10). if you do want to try 11.10 version of ubuntu soft center go to this site (this is the official ppa for ubuntu soft center) download the latest stable release and try to install it(at your own risk)

The easiest way is to update it through the default update program. It will install the latest version for sure.

Then I Am Not Sure That You Will Be Able To. I Think The New Software Center Is Gnome 3 Dependent. Anyway I Am Not An Expert So You'd Better Wait For A Better Answer. – Shahe Tajiryan Oct 20 '11 at 13:44
