I think you're right about that, 273. I guess the real question is, how does it go about showing you what's available for purchase?

Solution!
 
I've fixed it!

My problem was as simple as the "P" in "Precise" in /etc/lsb-release under "DISTRIB_CODENAME" being capitalized instead of lowercase. It should be:

Code:

DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu
DISTRIB_RELEASE=12.04
DISTRIB_CODENAME=precise
DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 12.04"

Other files of note:

/etc/issue:
Code:

Ubuntu 12.04 \n \l
/etc/issue.net
Code:

Ubuntu 12.04
As mentioned previously, it seems that one needs to both enable the partner repository and add the lines mentioned to /usr/share/software-center/softwarecenter/backend/channel.py (or uncomment them if they're already present).

Thanks for your input, everyone! I can't believe it was such a silly mistake... ;-D
