You want to try PackageKit in updates-testing. It's much never than
0.2.x. Also, you need to file bugs if you want something fixed.

That menu item is provided by gnome-packagekit, which depends on
PackageKit.

If I were you, I would enable updates-testing, and install PackageKit
and gnome-packagekit and try it out again.

I guess I have been spoilt by the Windows way of doing things - if at first it doesn't work, re-install and try again. Sorry. 

Installing PackageKit and gnome-packagekit from updates-testing seems to have done it. Thanks for your help.
