I can't reproduce this... Did you change any settings related to security? Also, which edition are you on (Budgie, GNOME, MATE, Plasma)?

I get the message when trying to install a package, but this is a policykit dialog saying you need to authenticate to continue. I would have thought it was always the case entering your password was needed to install packages.
