Description of problem:
Upon upgrading to the latest Rawhide up2date, I have noticed that executing
up2date does nothing. If I start up2date from the console, I receive the following:
There was an authentication error: Unable to authenticate
This error message should be more descriptive (citing what the user may or may
not be able to do to fix it). It should also be available as a dialog box, if
up2date is running in Gnome mode.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. see description
Actual Results: "There was an authentication error: Unable to authenticate" is
displayed only if up2date is executed from a console.
Expected Results: The error message should be displayed in a dialog box, and be
more descriptive as to what the actual problem is.
