[SOLVED]Not asking for root passwd during update/install

Post by blazejwiecha »

Hello,
I have my Mint 20 Cinnamon , for some time there was no problem with installing / updating system using GUI (not pat upgrade in terminal) but from few days there are some updates for my system. When I pressed update on Update GUI app there is no question for password any more so update doesn't work at all. Same problem with gui Install app and GUI Gparted.
On all of them should be question for bigger privileges using correct password but none of apps ask for it any more.
How can I repair it ?
Any suggestions

ok , I found the problem
It was because I added a line to /etc/fstab for PiHole app

Code: Select all

proc /proc proc defaults,hidepid=1,gid=33
Now I just need to resolve the PiHole app on Mint (default config is for ubuntu)
