Please describe the problem.

git annex info shows a local repo as "not here" (withou the [here] tag), and shows a remote repo with the [here] tag.

I had to manually edit .git/config to set my local repo's UUID to the correct one.

Well, git-annex can only display information that you've told it. In this case you seem to have done something wrong with UUIDs, and so it displayed [here] next to the UUID of the local repo, as it's supposed to. There's no bug here I think. done --Joey

What steps will reproduce the problem?

I just git annex dead an old repo, and git annex semitrust a new repo by the same name as the old repo.

What version of git-annex are you using? On what operating system?

5.20150731-1build1

Lubuntu 15.10

Have you had any luck using git-annex before? (Sometimes we get tired of reading bug reports all day and a lil' positive end note does wonders)

Yes, lots of luck (need more skill).

git-annex may need more error catches to prevent a wrong order of commands from corrupting a repo. But still, git annex works great.
