I see this with Firefox too; updating accordingly (feel free to split this into two separate bugs if it is)

@Robert: Can you please test on your setup and confirm it's fixed?

So, I tried libunity-webapps 2.3.9-0ubuntu1, which contains the above revision. With a fresh user, having sudo rights and fresh session.
Doesn't work using chromium.

Can we have the webapps team first testing their code rather than asking the reporter "it's maybe fixed"? Thanks.

To comment #5:

There is a known issue w/ chromium that somehow prevents the installation to reach policykit or something.

As of Firefox, there is an aptdaemon branch from Michael Vogt that fixes the high-trust installations (which webapps is part of) pending to me merged that seems to fix it: https://code.launchpad.net/~mvo/aptdaemon/fix-high-trust-repo-pkcompat

And the webapps team didn't as the reporter to check that it fixed,

Confirming it's working on firefox (but not on G+, gmail and some others… there are different bug reports for those), but not on chromium. I'm changing back the bug title to clear that up and remove the added "firefox" part.

As discussed on IRC, the "Needs information" on the spreadsheet wasn't clear about it and seems that there was some wait on the reporter to confirm it.

Hi! Sorry I was sort of asking for confirmation of the bug.

Obviously if I could reproduce it I wouldn't leave it as an open bug ;)

Seems we are fine in firefox, still some issue with policykit in chromium?

If this is a policykit issue, could it be related to https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/policykit-1/+bug/1021410? It may be a coincidence, but I just updated to Quantal and started seeing both problems.
