After you press enter, check the status bar. It'll say Loading Repositories. See if there is any error/information there. – Bibhas Mar 15 '13 at 19:04
I think I mess around with the user settings and did not know how to get back...I disabled PC and reinstalled it. It works but I have yet not got the answer as to why that happened. – Stat-R Mar 19 '13 at 14:43
It's hard to tell without any debug info. – Bibhas Mar 19 '13 at 15:10

Try the following

Package settings > Package control: user > Delete the repository entries that are located at this location

Then Ctrl + Shift + P

Also make sure there's no old package with the same name on your system -- Preferences -> Browse Packages.. – Steve Lamb Dec 9 '14 at 23:17
