When I first got that message I was also concerned, because I thought my
system wasn't set up to update packages automatically. Then I checked
and it turned out it was set up to only do security updates by itself,
which obviously didn't exist before the release. The problem was not
that there was a password prompt, but that it didn't give me any
information whatsoever, just "Enter the password to update packages". If
it would have shown me what packages it wants to update and/or a small
link to more information (where to configure automatic updates), that
experience would have been much nicer.
