I always get asked for root password when there are updates available in 
the update manager icon. If you get a "keyring unlock" message maybe is 
because you are using "sudo" instead plain "su" and then you have to 
provide your user password, not root's one.

BTW, I'd be worried if the update manager does not ask me for the root 
password ;-)
