LR5: although enabled, no reverse geocoding


Having returned from a long trip, I've decided to try LR5. My LR4 settings included, among others, reverse geocoding enabled in catalog settings. I've verified that LR5 "inherited" that setting too, imported several thousands photos and auto tagged them with a GPX file.

Although the PC has been continuously connected to the Internet during the whole process, only the GPS coordinates and height were added to all photos, yet no other location fields (country, city etc.) were added to any of these photos. Searching the Internet, I disabled the reverse geocoding and closed LR5. Afterwards, I reopened the catalog in LR5 and re-enabled reverse geocoding, yet none of the missing location fields were added.

Any idea how can I automatically add the missing fields to all those photos with existing coordinates-preferably without add-ons?
