use "Update system now" on update applet.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:

"Failed to update system
The error was: org.freedesktop.packagekit.update-system auth_admin_keep_always"
System is upgraded, not fresh install
What versions PackageKit and gnome-packagekit?
Did it ask you for the admin password? Can you give me some more details pls?
It doesn't ask for any password, as I login as root.
You shouldn't login as root. PackageKit just won't work like that - it's
designed as a user tool. GTK was never designed to be run as the root user.
We should probably at least catch this case, since, despite all warnings, some
people will still run X as root.
Fixed in PK: ef4c2d59397061ae594cd064b5ff6f12f7a11689 and GPK:
Want me to backport to stable?
Would be nice to see it in F9 (I don't understand what do you mean by stable)
Okay, we'll be getting 0.2.0 in F9 in a few weeks, so I'll mark it NEXTRELEASE.
