spurious polkit authentication request from update-manager

Bug #1631337 reported by Pierre Ossman (Cendio AB)
This bug affects 2 people
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
update-manager (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Logging in remotely bugs users with a polkit dialog asking them to authenticate. This is because a remote session does not have access to org.debian.apt.update-cache.

Such dialogs should only pop up on direct user action, so either this background process needs to be removed, or it needs to fail silently when it isn't authorized.
