Hmm, that is unexpected.  There shouldn't be any change in the
behavior in this area.

If you feel like it, could you experiment a bit with apt-get update in
the shell and "Refresh list of applications" in the Application
Manager UI?

To get a clean slate, do

   # rm /var/lib/apt/lists/*

After that, both apt-get update and "Refresh list of applications"
_should_ get you back into a useable state and should ignore
non-existing distributions or components.

You can review detailed messages with "Tools > Log" in the Application
Manager.  (Upcoming versions of the Application Manager will be more
helpful with debugging catalogue configurations.)
