Bug Description

How to reproduce:

0. Visit
1. Type "ls" in the search box
2. Hit RETURN key
3. Observe that "All results Hardy (8.04) Precise (12.04) Lucid (10.04) Natty (11.04) Oneiric (11.10)" is shown.

Obviously, a EOL series, Natty is included while a released and supported series, Quantal is not included. (Note that man pages for Quantal is broken by itself at this point.)

By checking, the code branch, I noted that even more outdated meta-data:

I don't know why the actual result and the meta-data in code branch is not consistent.

I can confirm that currently (with Ubuntu 20.04 already published), a search for a non-existing manpage opens a google customized search that allows filtering for obsolete Ubuntu releases

All Hardy (8.04) Precise (12.04) Lucid (10.04) Natty (11.04) Oneiric (11.10)

see screenshot in the attachment.
