flatpak: installing gitg as flatpak causes some weird Polkit issue and install fails
Open, LowPublic

Description

I tried installing a flatpak of Gitg in my Byzantium VM, the shell presented me a Polkit prompt I was normally not supposed to see (it should just have installed it transparently). I wasn't able to authenticate via that prompt, I only was able to cancel, failing the installation.

I think this is an issue with the runtime that Gitg uses.
