Description Ales Zelinka 2009-07-15 12:18:07 EDT
Description of problem:
Package update via gpk-update-viewer doesn't work - After I click on "Install updates" button, dependencies are resolved, 2 new packages are has to be installed, I confirm this window too and an Error message window appears saying that:

Authorization failed
You have failed to provide correct. Please check any passwords or account settings.

And in the "more details" part only "failed to obtain auth" is written, leaving me with no clue of what went wrong.

"yum update" works just fine, so this probably has nothing to do with the state of the repositories used.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.run gpk-update-viewer
2.click all the confirmation buttons

Actual results:
the strange auth-failure message

Expected results:
correct update, just like with "yum update"

Additional info:
I'm not sure what has actually failed: authentication or authorization? The error message mentions both. And it could have been a little more informative, especially the "more details" part.

Have you got polkit-gnome installed? If not, please install it, and reboot, and then try again. Thanks.
Comment 3 Ales Zelinka 2009-07-17 06:09:47 EDT
Yep, that was it - gpk-* apps are working once again after installing polkit-gnome (without reboot).

Thanks for the quick reply!

Should I file a new bug to track the missing dependency or will you re-use this one?

Dep is being dragged in by gnome-session now. Thanks for testing.
