Asked by daverpr

After upgrading 12.10 to v13.04 - Ubuntu Tweak presents [2] Old Kernal and [1] unneeded Package error message stating
“org.freedesktop.PolicyKit.Error.NotAuthorized: ('system-bus-name', {'name': ':1.76'}): org.debian.apt.install-or-remove-packages”

Trying to use Janitor function of Ubuntu Tweak. Expecting after clean Ububtu Tweak message that system is clean.

Maybe you are experiencing those issues, because the version of Ubuntu Tweak on your system is older than version 0.8.4.

Have you tried these instructions?

I suggest running the following commands:

sudo apt-get purge ubuntu-tweak
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tualatrix/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-tweak

Please read this as well:

"Ubuntu Tweak 0.8.4 fixes the following issues:

    When trying to install apps using the previous Ubuntu Tweak version, if there was a network error or failed download, the application would hang after trying to click the "Close" button - this has been fixed now;
    Creating of a hard link to a directory crashes Ubuntu Tweak;
    Janitor only shows "System";
    Ubuntu Tweak crashes on updating software list."
