    Well in the list you have shown of ls -la output you appear to have managed to get away with using command sudo synaptic or other GUI applications, though are you sure that was the full list of output you saw as there appear to be a few files missing in your list, eg .Xauthority, .xsession-errors, .ICEauthority.
    Are you using wayland instead of xorg? That may account for the lack of .Xauthority and .xsession-errors.

    I also note the username oem and I wonder if you have performed an oem installation, though I admit I'm not sure what that means regarding running a normal user session so we must wait someone who know about OEM installations if that is how you installed.

    It is a default 'ubuntu' session, and the output above is complete; no matter what the user name is (dont be disturbed by it )

    Compared to an other install '.dbus' here is owned by 'user' instead of 'root' on the other install.

    On my Ubuntu 20.04 synaptic works fine clicking on the icon and desktop file is as follows:
    Code:
    [Desktop Entry]
    Name=Synaptic Package Manager
    GenericName=Package Manager
    Comment=Install, remove and upgrade software packages
    Exec=synaptic-pkexec
    Icon=synaptic
    Terminal=false
    Type=Application
    Categories=PackageManager;GTK;System;Settings;
    X-Ubuntu-Gettext-Domain=synaptic
    StartupNotify=true
    StartupWMClass=synaptic

    This has nothing do do with synaptic, it's about pkexec.
    The ~/.dconf folder is useless, generally created in the past by sudo gedit or similar. Normally also would see ~/.cache/dconf which also is useless. Both folder and contents can be deleted.

    To check $HOME for root owned files better to run
    Code:
    ls -lA -R  |grep "root root"
    At this point in Gnome (Ubuntu session) one can again run sudo gedit without consequence.
    Also now there is no ~/.Xauthority file with gdm3.

    To confirm it's just your user you could create a new user with admin rights and see.. Currently you can't do that but you can change the policy so no need to auth user-accounts.
    Open /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/org.gnome.controlcenter.user-accounts.policy file as root, change the <allow_active>auth_admin</allow_active> line to yes as in screen.
    Then if the new user can use pkexec for synaptic maybe you can find a file in ~/ that needs to be removed/redone/whatever.

    A fresh install will certainly solve.

    If you wanted to remove auth on opening synaptic normally then do the above edit on
    /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/com.ubuntu.pkexec.synaptic.policy

    Is the lack of .Xauthority a gnome case only, as I certainly have that file in my home in Xubuntu 20.04.

    I have not used gnome for a long time now and have no way to find out if this is so or not.

    I suspect so. A fresh install about 10 days ago had none, a fresh install today the same.

    Edit:
    It's the display manager. gdm3 doesn't create/use .Xauthority file, lightdm does and maybe other display managers.
