Looks to be a bug to me... I've the same on 10.10 Synaptic.

But google shows:
etc., that it's been moved to the software center... now isn't that
nice. It's changes like this (and the supposed move to Unity in narwal)
that make me wonder "what are they thinking".

I've checked launchpad & it doen't appear that anyone's filed a bug
report regarding this, so you might want to.
Ubuntu Software Center

Ubuntu Software Center now shows "Featured" and "What's New" sections, a
History of package installations and removals, and makes it easier to
find add-ons for applications. It also offers Fluendo DVD Player for
purchase, with more software to come soon.
but no mention of removing from Synaptic, so IMO it's a bug. File away.
