I didn't find the "orphaned" category but the "obsolete" category when unselecting "hide obsolete" checkbox. Does the "Orphaned" category appears only when orphaned packages exist ?


Maybe it would be more intuitive to find "orphaned" into the "filters" : a category still be the same category whatever the package is installed, not installed, pending, obsolete or orphaned.

If a package is orphaned, then setup has no information about what category it was in when it was installed.
