Description Kamil Páral 2016-05-12 09:14:17 UTC
Description of problem:
I have followed https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA:Testcase_Workstation_Graphical_Upgrade and downloaded and started system upgrade without providing my password anywhere (my user is in wheel group, but I was not asked for password, so I assume it would work the same even for users not being in wheel).

I don't think this is a good idea. Installing programs, ok. Updating system, maybe. But a full system upgrade from one release to another, performed by an ordinary user with no admin privileges? That doesn't sound as a good idea.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gnome-software-3.20.3-0.191.20160425git.fc23.x86_64
libhif-0.2.3-0.145.20160427git.fc23.x86_64
libappstream-glib-0.5.14-1.fc23.x86_64
json-glib-1.2.0-1.fc23.x86_64
PackageKit-1.1.1-1.fc23.x86_64

How reproducible:
always I guess

Steps to Reproduce:
1. as a standard user with no admin privileges, follow the test case

Comment 1 Richard Hughes 2016-05-12 09:39:10 UTC
Downloading the packages, or actually triggering the upgrade? The former doesn't need auth, the latter should.

Comment 2 Kamil Páral 2016-05-12 14:01:01 UTC
Yes, a standard user can trigger the upgrade. No auth needed.

Comment 3 Geoffrey Marr 2016-05-17 06:52:51 UTC
I am seeing this too on F23 Workstation to F24 upgrade.
