Description of problem:
several issues, hope its ok to listen them all in one submit.

- packages that aren't installed on the system appear on up2date. this
is quite a pain browsing though 200+ packages to see what updates are
available to packages that are actually installed on the system. isnt
it more logical to only show me updates to packages the system has
installed, rather than all available packages?

- when trying to update up2date as a non-root user and it prompts you
to enter the password up2date exits (doesn't do anything) after you
enter it. 

- when trying to update up2date in terminal it returns:
"Could not set exec context to root:rpm_t:sysadm_r." despite doing:

su root

seems to be very buggy..

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. su root
2. up2date
