For me Apper 0.7.0 from KDF is usable but annoying,

System Settings -> Software Management -> Updates

Now I am prompted for a root login with:

"Authentication is required to set the network proxy used for downloading

This does not repsect my KDE network proxy settings which are: "Connect to
the Internet directly"

I shouldn't be seeing this request at all. So I cancel this root auth
request, and now packagekitd seems to hang in some loop while slowly
consuming RAM until it's killed.

Additionally, If I ignore the request, the request dialogue will eventually

I think this request is coming directly from packagekitd, not Apper, so it
can't directly respect your user policy settings. Still a bug though. It
would be interesting to find out if we can collapse all PK's policy requests
into one.

If I continue in the update workflow by entering my root auth in the proxy
settings request, the list of updates are shown. I can then select the
updates I want and an entering another root auth to install them the
installation procceeds successfully.

If I perform an update workflow using the Apper systray icon, I experience
the same issue with an extraaneous request to set my proxy settings in
addition to the request to auth for the actuall update; but the update does
at least process and is successfull.

Additionally, the KDE polkit auth agent segfaulted when I relogged to test
the update from systray applet workflow, I don't have symbols installed but
here's the trace anyway:

There's a button in the crash dialog to install symbols, please get a full
trace for us!

So yeah it's a bit annoying to use with the double auth request, but at
least the updates actually work.
