I have seen something like this happen twice. It was some years ago, so I don't remember all the details.

Once I got a message like this when the computer was incorrectly configured to use NIS authentication.
The other time there was an error in the policy files for polkit. (Look under /etc/polkit-1).

Look at the dbus problem first as it's likely everything else is because of that. Read your logs and/or journalctl output to see if you can work out why.
The future appears to be RHEL or Debian. I think I'm going Debian.

Is that a question or a statement?

If you want to solve this then the root cause is almost certainly that dbus is broken so you need to fix that. To do that you need to find out what is wrong so start by reading your logs /var/log/{messages,secure} and see if there is a problem listed there. Also look at the output from journalctl -u dbus.

And please don't post duplicate topics.
