[Bug 292699] [NEW] 8.10: new adept manager unusable

Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: adept

The new adept manager installed with 8.10 does not function properly.

Biggest problem: it doesn't show all available packages. In fact when you search for a package, it shows an entirely wrong set of packages. For example. Search for "apache". There's no sign of any apache packages shown, but Adept lists
libclucene, libssl,librpc-xml-perl and ksystemlog. Apache CAN be installed using "apt-get install apache2" so the repository list obviously knows about it.

This is a real pain because I seem to be lacking some Apache support
files and with a working Adept I could find them, but with this I can't.

The "state" and "requested" section is also totally un-intuitive. I
THINK I've just about worked it out now, but I'm not certain about that.
