This is a followup to the thread started here:
There are two problems with installing from a local directory.
1. In the Category view, "No packages found" is displayed where it
should say "All" in the first line of the list. This is probably just
a cosmetic issue, and I haven't tried to track it down yet.
This actually happens in all setup runs, not just local installs. It
looks like it was caused by the rearranging that was done in the

Correctly order preparing packagedb for chooser
I think the problem might be that createListview() is now called too
early in ChooserPage::OnInit(). But it's not immediately obvious to me
how to fix this without breaking something else.
We don't update this header if a search reduces the number of packages
shown to 0, which might make some sort of sense.
(Also, weirdly, we don't remove empty categories from view, except if we
are doing a search, but this seems to be deliberate? (PickView.cc:311))

Subject: [PATCH setup] Always give the fake root category the name 'All'
After we rearranged things in 0c539f7f, it's now too early to tell if we
have any packages or not.
The only thing about this category that is ever used is it's name, so we
don't acually need to use the real 'All' category here.
Saying 'No packages found' was never particularly helpful here, so just use
a fake category with the fixed name 'All'.
