I'm running Feren OS which is based off of Ubuntu, Linux Mint, and Debian. Whenever I try to install or update software using a GUI like Store or Update Manager, I get this error:

org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Message recipient disconnected from message bus without replying

The update application is called mintUpdate and the store is just Feren Store.

I'm pretty sure it has something to do with the policy kit.

I am able to use apt just fine, this only happens with GUI-based updates and installations.

  • I already said I'm using Update Manager. I think it also goes by something like mintUpdate maybe. – Joshua Anderson May 10 at 23:21
  • Using the exact name of the application helps because that is a generic dbus error message. Is there any additional output or any information in the Information window of mintUpdater or relevant log? can you update manually via apt? Again, please edit your post to include this information instead of commenting. Thank you. – kemotep May 10 at 23:32
