Every time I install apps from the Software Center I get an error message which says

Software can't be installed or removed because the authentication service is not available. (org.freedesktop.PolicyKit.Error.Failed: ('system-bus-name', {'name':  ':1.140'}): org.debian.apt.install-or-remove-packages

Update: Logged in and out and it seems to work now
