I have the same problem, but I doens't seem only a sabayon issue since I've found that also some arch and gentoo user are experiencing it.https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/24006
It looks like a problem with policykit configuration that has broken after the latest updated.
I hope that link will help you (it helped me, somehow).
Happy new year,
P.S. Sabayon is a great distro: don't give up and it will reward you. Sometimes (quite often, actually) it may get broken and have these kind of issues, but the time you'll spend fixing them should give you opportunity to better understand how the system works.

Without typing the entirety , it is in part
Error failed:Action org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.settings.modify.own is not registered.
My desktop is now telling me there are 66 updates available, this may have something to do with it.
I tried the code micia suggested, here i get "command not found" message. When i have access to a wired connection
again i will try to copy and paste it into the terminal.
I will also have to wait to do the remaining updates until i get back to the public library as well. A wired connection is
not an option for me at home.
To help clarify my situation, i am a patient man, i don't give up easily on any linux system as the problems are due in
large part to my own lack of experience and computer proficiency.
The fact that i have spent over a month waiting and trying to get a working sabayon system can attest to that.
From what i have seen of sabayon so far ,i like and will persevere to give it an honest trial, i do appreciate every offer
to help. This is not a case of whatever fits better though, rather if kubuntu connects to the internet and sabayon
doesn't, which one would you use?
