This shouldn't be related, but I'm wondering where did you get the line 
"reload after 'installing the needed packages'" it doesn't come from 
ABRT. If ABRT thinks the BT is ok it won't give you any advice, but if 
the developer wants you to install additional debuginfo packages, then 
the formula is quite simple if the refresh button fails then:

$ debuginfo-install <the-name-of-the-package-where-crash-occured>
and it should handle the rest.

or you can try:

$ yum update abrt --enablerepo=testing and try the updated version which 
should fix some problems with debuginfo installing.
