    I am seeing "/usr/lib/packagekitd" running as a system process (owned by root) and probably started when the system booted, and I am seeing "/usr/lib64/kde4/libexec/kpackagekitsmarticon" as a user process (owned by me), presumably started by KDE when I logged in.

    On second thoughts, "packagekitd" has a very recent time stamp. I'm not sure what is starting that. Perhaps it is being restarted and used for polling.
    openSUSE Leap 15.1; KDE Plasma 5;

    Interestingly it repeated failed with one user; so I always had to go to YaST>Onliine update. Now it never appears on that user. However, it still appears on another user and updates perfectly each time. No idea why.

    I do not seem to have packagekit running. Then again i have all kinds of
    auto update turned off, rather completely. I prefer to do all my updates
    manually anyway.

    Use the YaST Software Manager (aka "Install/Remove Software)
    Search for packages using "packagekit"
    Remove everything found that is installed.
    YOU (YaST On-line Update will stiil be available" as will e.g. "zypper up repo-update".
