Re: Auth window broken?
I'm afraid that I can't help, but can offer empathy as I have exactly the same problem.
I have a new hard drive and installed 10.10 fresh. I then tried to restore a snapshot of my old hard drive (also 10.10 updated) and fear that I have caused some serious devastation. I have exactly the same symptoms. sudo works fine in terminal, Authentication Panel shakes horizontally for 0.5 seconds and then disappears. No install from Software Centre and no updates from the Update Manager.
Any help would be appreciated!
