Package: policykit-1
Version: 0.105-23
Severity: important

I think that it is a similar issue as this: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=765383

I can't poweroff restart and do other actions like mount external volumes.

The system session manager is slim.

This solution: https://lists.dyne.org/lurker/message/20190129.061245.464347ee.en.html works for me. Now I can poweroff, restart and mount external devices too.
