It's how Nokia will push system and 1st-party software upgrades in the  
future, so uninstalling osso-software-version means you wont get those  
upgrades.[1] apt-get update just refreshes your repository list, what  
you want to ask about is apt-get upgrade. The difference is that osso- 
software-version is how the upgrades will be made available through  
Application manager. You _may_ be able to upgrade using apt-get  
upgrade, but it wont appear in Application manager.

Either way, the better solution is to either install and uninstall  
Gizmo/Skype/Rhapsody, and that will take care of it, or to remove  
the .desktop files for Gizmo/Skype/Rhapsody from /usr/share/ 
applications/hildon. There are a couple enhancement requests on  
Bugzilla to allow these bundled applications to be uninstalled easily.
