Description of problem:
Gnome screen shield has a blue color and it can't be changed to neither other color or image.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Gnome version 3.28.2
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Settings->Background->Screen shield.
2. Choose another color or image.
The screen shield is the same.
The shield has a color that I set.
On command line, the command
$ dconf read /org/gnome/desktop/screensaver/picture-uri
However, when I try to set an image to the key:
$ dconf write /org/gnome/desktop/background/picture-uri "'file:///usr/share/backgrounds/8-dark.xml'"
error: The operation attempted to modify one or more non-writable keys

I can see two possible reasons for that error:
1. an administrator has locked down the key
2. something has messed up the permissions of the dconf DB (~/.config/dconf/user), like running graphical applications under sudo
Neither is a gnome-shell issue, so closing.
