Odoo is the world's easiest all-in-one management software. It includes hundreds of business apps:
CRM | e-Commerce | Accounting | Inventory | PoS | Project management | MRP | etc.
I downloaded and unzipped both "label - Partner labels" here and "sale_report_html - Sale Report HTML" here to /usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/openerp/addons, ran 'service openerp restart' then ran Settings, Update Modules List. "Number of modules added :" reports 0 and neither module can be found under Settings, Modules.
A simple question, did you have unzip your downloaded files which is a zip file ?
You do not explain this step in your explanation.
No reason to do it in this case but perhaps restart openerp server too.
UPDATE : ok, did you download module for version 6.1 ?
If yes it is possible that it comes from extra addons, for a few modules in this extra addons, this is the same than for version 6.0 or 5.0.
Then you have 3 things to verify in your module :
veryfy you have good rights for your downloaded modules.
in the module dit you have a file __openerp__py ? If not and you have instead __terp__.py your module will not be visible, rename it by __openerp__.py but I don't think the module will work.
Third, verify in file __openerp__.py if option installable is True.
I see any other reason for the moment.
Hope this will help and work.
Thanks greatly to @GEM for their hard work, but; I just discovered none of that was the solution. Though @GEM did touch on it by saying "veryfy you have good rights for your downloaded modules." Sadly, my answer 'Rights/permissions "chown -R root.root"' did not address the real problem.
When unzipping the applications their permissions were set by unzip to be "drwx------". The fix to the problem was:
root@QnD:/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/openerp/addons# chmod a+rx -R label sale_report_html
