We faced this before, having at least one network connection managed by
NetworkManager is a workaround.  To do this, configure a network
connection in Plinth, comment out the connection in
/etc/network/interfaces and reboot.  It should work.

Currently, all network connections in a FreedomBox images are configured
using NetworkManager, so this hasn't been a big headache.  It would be
nice to have a solution.  It sounds like your configuration change to
PackageKit.conf should have worked.
