It doesn't change the gsettings value /usr/libexec/packagekitd retrieves
when running as "root". That's the problem here (it seems to me).

$ gsettings get org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.updates frequency-get-updates
3600
$ su -
# gsettings get org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.updates frequency-get-updates
86400
#
