I had to save 2 of my hubs unpublished.
My hubs said 2 of them were duplicate, and they are not. Why did that happen? How can I address this issue?
Here's the info in the help section on duplicate hubs and what that means. http://hubpages.com/faq/#duplicate_content
If you still have questions you can email hubpages at firstname.lastname@example.org
1. You first published them somewhere else and then published them on Hubpages
2. They have a large percentage of keywords that appear somewhere else,
3. Your article could have been copied by someone else and published on another site.
Hope this helps, but like Susana S says do contact
email@example.com for more assistance.
Bascially, you've written on a popular subject and the algorithm used to test it can't tell what's original.
If you don't want to fight endless battles, you just can't write about popular subjects.
This is why most of my hubs follow an unorthodox, sarcastic, and personalized style about what is normally very serious subject matters. There's no substitute for being original. Not only do a prefer such a writing style, but it certainly avoids being tagged with the duplicate bug.
The fact of the matter is if you make an article that follows a professional/academic style on a popular subject, there's a good chance someone from a university or popular news media has an article that looks close to the same. Hubpages is a little paranoid over such issues, but it's understandable.

Why those of us moving over from Squidoo should not try to transfer our lenses to HubPages manually:I just moved one of my recipes that's fairly new, and doesn't have a high search engine ranking, thinking I would use it as a way to become familiar with the HubPages tools. I deleted the Squidoo...
