    The limit is usually 15 minutes unless you close software center.

    Take this as you may, I use this here though slightly more extended to some other related operations.
    This will allow those in sudo group, (typically just you), to install/remove apps thru the software-center or synaptic without add. auth

    Code:
    sudo gedit  /var/lib/polkit-1/localauthority/50-local.d/package-manager.pkla
    Copy & paste this in, save
    Code:
    [Install package file]
    Identity=unix-group:sudo
    Action=org.debian.apt.install-file;org.debian.apt.update-cache;org.debian.apt.install-or-remove-packages;org.debian.apt.upgrade-packages
    ResultActive=yes
    
    [Install package synaptic]
    Identity=unix-group:sudo
    Action=com.ubuntu.pkexec.synaptic
    ResultActive=yes
