Hi Mark and Andreas,

The latest update broke my beowulf VM a bit. Shutdown no longer works.
It cycles back to the login screen and the pkexec launcher I created for
synaptic is doa. I'm pretty sure it has to do with the fluid policykit
landscape. Will the update process eventually correct this or am I going
to have to do it manually? I really have no business running
testing/ceres so I am a bit out of my depth but need to do so for the
theming. Some kindergarten instructions would be appreciated. :)
