Hello April,

There seems to be a problem in the authorization service.
We will track the issue in the attached bug report.

Can you perform any other administrative tasks on your computer? E.g. add a new user?

How did you know to fill a question for aptdaemon?

Hello Brian,

Have you heard about this error before? From time to time I got error reports or questions like the above one. Imaging that only a small percentage of the affected users can associate the problem with aptdaemon there seems to be a large number of users facing this issue.

Cheers

Dear April: I have upgraded my computer and I was been able to update it... but suddenly, now is asking me for a password. Do you have one because I don't??? Please advice me ;)

Carlos A. Mendoza.

Can you help with this problem?
