you seem to have installed jaunty (9.04) on your machine (you can check
that with the lsb_release -a command).

note that packages.ubuntu.com always defaults to the latest release of
ubuntu which would be karmic (9.10) to search for a package in jaunty
you need to explicitly select jaunty on the search form.

as you can see on https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/bash version 3.2
is in jaunty while 4.0 is in karmic ...
