GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1.Error.Failed

I’ve just updated, and after the update when I tried to access folders in my GUI file manager (nautilus) with root access (by adding admin:// to the front of the path), I get GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1.Error.Failed: Unix process subject does not have uid set
I tried to search online, it seems that this message isn't something that has really occurred that often to anyone at all. I'm at a loss. I loaded a snapshot I made 2 weeks ago and it is fine, then I updated again and then it broke again. It must be something that happens during the update that breaks that access. Anyone have similar problems?

Re: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1.Error.Failed

I can confirm the behaviour. Probably caused by the recent gvfs update.

The terminal shows

(org.gnome.Nautilus:3357): GVFS-WARNING **: 19:17:48.721: The peer-to-peer connection failed: Could not connect: Permission denied. Falling back to the session bus. Your application is probably missing --filesystem=xdg-run/gvfsd privileges.

Yep, I just updated again but ignored all updates from gvfs packages, and it is indeed not broken.

I'm also seeing the same thing. I've reporting as a bug so it can be tracked (https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/70108), then I might try digging through the gvfs repo.

Edit:

It seems to be caused by this commit: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gvfs/-/c … c51d4cbb32 which was there to close https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gvfs/-/issues/515 .

Reverting just that one commit reverts the behaviour (below). However, there could be some other issue that's preventing this change from working as expected.

Re: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1.Error.Failed

Also having this issue. I noticed if I do upgrade the gvfs* packages to 1.48.0-2, I get an "Unable to handle admin: locations" error. Then after downgrading to the 2 cached versions(1.46.2-1 and 1.48.0-1), I get this same GDBus.Error. I'm curious. What other packages could've caused this change since it seems to happen with gvfs updated or not? I could check my log and play whack-a-mole, but unsure if that would even solve it.

EDIT: Apologies, Downgrading to 1.46.2-1 again today seemed to have worked. Unsure what happened with the downgrade yesterday that it didn't. But user error apparently.

Re: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1.Error.Failed

Does anyone know if there's an open issue somewhere on this? It doesn't seem clearly proven in this thread that this is upstream. Hmm what to do. I use Xfce and now Thunar won't even start up because of this error:

(thunar:204741): GVFS-WARNING **: 12:55:55.329: The peer-to-peer connection failed: Timeout was reached. Falling back to the session bus. Your application is probably missing --filesystem=xdg-run/gvfsd privileges.
