    This seems to be affecting more than 12.10, same thing is happening in 12.04, maybe others?
    Both update-manager & synaptic can't display/get changelogs for packages that have recently updated

    It may be a problem with the automated build system, as there are quite a few change-logs missing on the quantal-changes mailing list too.

    Re: synaptic cant load packages's changelog

    The title is misleading as it implies synaptic has a problem when in fact it's not. The changelogs are simply not there so there is nothing synaptic can get and display. But synaptic actually nice to even suggest an alternative way of looking at them.

    Code:
    Err Changelog for nautilus (http://changelogs.ubuntu.com/changelogs/pool/main/n/nautilus/nautilus_3.5.1-0ubuntu4/changelog)
      404  Not Found
    Err Changelog for nautilus (http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/n/nautilus/nautilus_3.5.1-0ubuntu4.changelog)
      404  Not Found [IP: 91.189.92.153 80]
    E: changelog for this version is not (yet) available; try https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/nautilus/+changelog

    It works good here. I just:

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade

    run synaptic , item, changelogs are there.

    Re: synaptic cant load packages's changelog

    Seems to a continuing issue, quite unfortunate for all affected Ubuntu releases.
    Represents even a bit more of a pita now in 12.10, the 'new' Software Updater doesn't even get active links anymore. (The text updater version at least has working right click options for the truncated changelogs

    All in all a poor response from Canonical..

    Re: synaptic cant load packages's changelog

    I agree that it needs more attention, so I've raised the issue in #ubuntu-bugs. We're having a hard time figuring out who/where to assign it to so that it might get the attention it deserves.
