Because you don't use the Muon package manager. There is a huge
difference between the Muon Discover application which indeed doesn't
find half of the stuff. But the Muon package manager works pretty
flawlessly here (Kubuntu 14.10), much better than synaptic used to
work. The latter has seen some serious downgrading as it is not
actively maintained anymore.

The difference is this one:

muon = package manager
muon-discover = package browser that doesn't really work as well as expected.

Removing muon-discover solve the problem quite well. Since 14.10
(maybe even earlier, can't remember when exactly) muon works very much
like synaptic did.

As for Kubuntu 15.04: I totally agree with Orjan here, not for me, I
guess I will toy around with it on the test laptop, but it is too far
from stable for my productive computer.
