After the update to pkcon fails when run in terminal with "Fatal error: Failed to obtain authentication." It does seem to run if devel-su --privileged is used.

Have you set/verified a password in developer mode settings? I can't reproduce your problem and pkcon works fine.

Yes I have set a password in developer mode. pkcon worked fine just upto the update, but now it errors.

You need to be root(devel-su), check the release notes.
