Apper problem in Jessie

apper on Jessie doesn't work for me: It starts up, tells me it has packages
to upgrade, allows me to press the "Apply" button, but does not give me an
opportunity to enter the root password but tells me that it doesn't have the
privileges to install those packages. (apper on Wheezy prompts me for the
root password after pressing the "apply" button.)
I also made a few (feeble) attempts to run apper as root, but, naturally it
gave me the ~"no display" message and I didn't try to overcome that.
Is this a known problem, and is there a solution? (I have been using apt-get
update and apt-get upgrade to upgrade the system, and I thought maybe a new
package of apper would be installed to fix the problem, but that hasn't
happened so far.)
I prefer to use apper.
