This annoying dialog "Authentication Required" started to pop up recently, just after every login to KDE, demanding root password to refresh system repositories. After a minute or so it disappears on it's own, followed by a "update failed" tray notification, which also disappears soon. It's not a blocker, just annoying and looking unprofessionally. Please, how to get rid of this?
It must be something to do with KDE/Gnome interoperability because:
- it started to appear only after I had installed Gnome alongside my primary KDE
- no Authentication Required pops up when login to Gnome
- the dialog looks like it is from Gnome (KDE has a differently looking password UI)
The pop-up dialog says (in case you cannot see the screenshot above):
Authentication is required to refresh the system repositories. Action: Refresh system repositories org.freedesktop.packagekit.system-sources-refresh Vendor: The PackageKit project. polkit.subject-pid: xxxx polkit.caller-pid: xxxx
