    Default Bug in KPackageKit when refreshing sources

    When I refresh the sources on Software Updates via KPackageKit I get the following error:

    Error Type:
    Error Value: coercing to Unicode: need string or buffer, exceptions.SystemError found
    File : /usr/share/PackageKit/helpers/apt/aptBackend.py, line 2216, in
