Phill, what's your question? Synaptic was removed from the default
Ubuntu install, presumably to save space and most users are expected
to be using Ubuntu Software Center (USC) and Update Manager. Synaptic
is of course still supported in the repositories because a lot of
people still use it. Removing Synaptic has been discussed/planned ever
since USC was called software-store, especially since Synaptic has a
lot of confusing buttons.

And at the recent UDS, it was decided to include Deja Dup by default
for backups. Apparently, it now has Ubuntu One support but I haven't
tried it.
