I just fixed the actual problem in jockey.

The problem here is that the live file system does not have a valid
Release file, which python-apt could use to determine the origin of a
package. Thus a freshly installed system has the same problem until
the daily apt-get update cronjob kicks in and fetches it from the

Michael and I think that the best fix would be to put a valid Release
file into the live system.

This seems to have worked fine in Gutsy, and the apport code to
evaluate apt.Cache()[packagename].origin didn't change. So maybe the
Release file got inadvertently dropped from CD builds?

Colin, WDYT?
