Usually I just click on "Install Updates" when Update Manager runs - but today it is asking me to "Authenticate" so it wants the root password.
(The box actually says: "To install or remove software, you need to authenticate. An application is attempting to perform an action that requires privileges. Authentication is required to perform this action"
Is this normal? i.e does Update Manager sometimes requre the root passward and other times not?
