No, the problem is this: PackageKit does not know how to mount a 
removable media. As noted in the last comment of the mentioned bug, 
Muayyad Alsadi has implemented four methods for mounting a removable 
media: using DeviceKit, using GIO, using HAL and calling the system's 
mount command. The DeviceKit implementation cannot mount the device 
because of default system policies (the backend is running as root), GIO 
has a bug and does not allow mounting, HAL is deprecated, and PackageKit 
developer doesn't like mounting using the system's mount command!
