    Muon: This operation cannot continue since proper authorisation was not provided

    Kubuntu 12.04.2, KDE 4.10.1
    It used to be that I could open Muon updater, let it check for updates, click install when updates were found and then it would ask for my root password.
    Now when I click install I get a dialogue box:

    Code:
    This operation cannot continue since proper authorisation was not provided
    I googled it and can find it as a bug dating back to 2011 and early 2012, but not to recent date.
    Some of the earlier solutions point to having polkit-kde installed, but I have that:

    Code:
    root@quokka:/home/statia# dpkg -l | grep polkit-kde
    ii  polkit-kde-1                                                      0.99.0-3ubuntu5                                      KDE dialogs for PolicyKit
    I can probably work around this by running Muon updater with kdesudo, but I'd rather have it fixed.
    Anyone any ideas?

    And just as mysteriously as it stopped working, it has started working again.

    I had this message today. I did the "check for updates" again, but same message.

    The updates are security updates, but I can't install them.

    You can do your updates from the command line, with sudo apt-get update followed by sudo apt-get upgrade.

    Yes, I think that is what I did to get rid of the message.
