Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: kpackagekit

After upgrade to Natty, I noticed a detail about the package origins
that was confusing.  The lines in /etc/apt/sources.list for backports
were removed, but the comments about them above them were not removed.
This led me to think that I needed to put them back in.  Once I had done
that, I noticed that there was another origin in the list for backports,
which was being added by the "unsupported updates" checkbox in the
updates tab of the edit origins box.

So, there are two problems here.  The lines in the configuration file
should be commented or uncommented depending on that checkbox.  another
redundant origin should not be added by the checkbox thus creating two
different origins for the same thing.

Second, when the checkbox is checked, you can't uncheck it.  The only
way to uncheck it is to uncheck the box for the appropriate line in the
main window of kpackage kit for "origin of packages"
