Maybe can help. OK, it's from 2013. But I think, it's worth a try.

You need to be root to refresh packages. Do "devel-su pkcon refresh"

When it asks for password, give the nemo user password. (the password you have set up in the "settings->developer mode" dialog)

not working have a look at the screenshot below in the answer

pkcon refresh as well as other pkcon actions works perfectly if running as nemo user. Try it.

This is a really bad advice. Running stuff which does not require extra permissions with root privileges is a hazardous and wrong habit. It really increases chance to screw up you system. Please don't profess it.

@Self-Perfection that's an odd one...

It works only as devel-su on my device. And I know because I tested it before giving the advice...

juiceme ( 2016-09-13 11:32:06 +0200 )edit

And it is the same on all my devices!

Tested it just now on sbj-1, ported Nexus5 and Jolla Tablet. (My Jolla-C is not with me now so cannot test with taht...)

@abhi9650, OK, now I see it did not work for you even as root.

Probably you have something wrong in your SSU setup.

Did you read this authentication failed is ssu setup correctly and those alike, just use search with "ssu authentication failed"
