It is a concern, definitely.  Do you have other suggestions? What wording
would you prefer and why?

It's not an installation source , it is somewhere the user can find
and install packages from. I would suggest:

Software Repository

or

Software Catalogue.

Repository is in use by most other linux distributions so is probably
the best choice, although catalogue has wider usage in the English
language.

Source doesn't really explain what it is, and is too confusable with
source code.
