My KPackageKit is not downloading any update, it shows updates, I click apply, I authenticate, then it asks me to accept an agreement, after which it returns to an empty KPackageKit (as if there were no updates). If I open it again, there are the possible updates again (naturally, since it didn’t download anything).

oh~!!! yeah! Thank you very much and sorry for the stupid question… in other news, it said nothing to do, so I suppose KPackageKit was lying to me >_>
I configure it not to check for updates, it’s a bit buggy anyway.
Not a stupid question either.
You update graphically with Yast > Software > Online Update
or Yast > Software > Software Management (and then do) http://dl.dropbox.com/u/10573557/Software%20Management/SM3.png
Interestingly it fails as you describe with one user but works perfectly with another user; so it looks as if the cause of the failure is an obscure KDE configuration bug. I cannot think of anything which is significantly different between the two users.
All the update managers work for me but I still don’t use them.
