Maybe it was a "hiccup". GNOME keyring should unlock when the system starts 
and then just asks for user's password when using NM connections or 
accessing to network shares, but I've never seen it to ask for root's 
password in update manager :-?

Yep, I would also wait and see for the next update available.
