I have a problem updating packages when using the kpackagekit systray notifier, it fails with the error "failed to obtain authentication".
I've looked around and can't find any log output of this.

If i start kpackagekit from the menu it all works fine, but not this way.

This is with kubuntu 10.10, upgraded from 10.04, it did actually work before. :(

It's look a bug. It's happen to me also. Try to update to latest SC 4.5.3 and see if it works or not.

Tips from me :

Open terminal and install aptitude :D That old pal's is the best package manager IMHO :):popcorn:
