Bug description:
  In saucy, update-manager is completely failing to install any
  packages.  It auto-launches and presents me the list of packages to
  install; but when I click 'Install now', the window closes and update-
  manager exits.  Running u-m from the console shows there are no error
  messages and the process exits 0.

  If I run update-manager without the '--no-update' flag, I'm given a
  dialog saying:

   You are not allowed to perform this action

   You don't have the required privileges to perform this action.

   Settings               Try Again        OK

  This suggests that there is probably a policykit issue here.  However,
  that issue isn't going to resolve itself, so update-manager needs to
  notify the user of the problem instead of silently exiting.
