I am not able to see even a single application for purchase in Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal Software Center. It has been the like this ever since i did clean install over 10.10.

Are available applications restricted to geographic boundaries? I live in India.

How many apps can you see on your computer? Can someone guide me into getting this feature in back in the Software Center?


  • I do have the Partner, Universe, Multiverse, Restricted, and even "Independent" repositories enabled. I currently use the Main Ubuntu server to fetch updates. Can anyone single-down onto the repository that provides the applications for purchase – LeonardPeris May 24 '11 at 19:01

I live in India and I've set my update server to default ubuntu server. This is how it looks :

Ubuntu software cener

Try changing your update server and see if that helps. I've found that the IIT-M server (which I used for a bit) is heavily behind. However, I haven't gone back to it and have relied on the main servers since then.

  • Even I've set my update servers to the default repository. In spite of that, no luck. – LeonardPeris Jun 19 '11 at 13:21

Too few apps in my opinion.
