I've had no problems installing unsigned RPMs recently.  Maybe it has something to do just with the Adobe RPM.   Will do some investigating.

It's Rawhide, so this looks like fallout from PolicyKit 1.
Comment 4 Richard Hughes 2009-08-10 07:00:09 EDT
Well, there's no KDE version of an authentication agent for polkit1...
Comment 5 Richard Hughes 2009-08-10 07:04:29 EDT
Grrr, changing component correctly as Midori doesn't seem to handle bugzilla well...
Comment 6 Steven M. Parrish 2009-08-26 15:00:46 EDT
This is fixed in the current release of Packagekit and Kpackagekit.  Please upgrade to the newest versions.  Feel free to reopen this bug if the problem persists.
