I had this happen once, too.  Select the "Show expired overrides" link
on the upper right, and find the override for jboss-connector.  I
think packages are counted as expired overrides once they get pushed
to testing, or something like that.  I think the user interface leaves
a lot to be desired, as this is not intuitive behavior for us
