It turns out someone filed a bug report about this;  it has had no replies.

     But forum posts elsewhere suggest a reason for the problem (which
has been observed by people using Edgy as well as Feisty - common
feature is installation of SlimDevices Slimserver):

     "I get a software update notification for libpath-class-perl 1.5.1 >
libpath-class-perl 1.5.1 and it never actually updates. I assume there
is some file diff between the lib provided by slimdevices and the file
in the Universe repository since when I commented out the slimdevices
repo the notification remained. I commented out the Universe repo in
synaptic and the update note finally goes away."

     Blocking the Universe repo sounds a bit drastic.  Does anyone have
any thoughts about other options?
