    Unity Dash: "Sorry, there is nothing that matches your search"

    Hey all, I upgraded from 12.04 to 13.10 but now my Unity Dash won't bring up any search results. I've tried the steps outlined here to no avail.

    Any help that could be provided would be appreciated.

    Thanks for your time.

    I get that message sometimes. I am using Trusty Tahr (14.04). I got it today. I click the applications lens. That seems to get the Dash search function spitting out stuff. And the Home super scope does what it is supposed to do. I think that the Dash needs to rebuild it search database from time to time.
    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.

    What application is not being located ? Is this a clean installation or did you upgrade in order from 12.04-1210-13.04-13.10 ?
