Unfortunately the above isn't enough to determine what is happening,
package-update-indicator uses DBus implicitly for displaying the
indicator, sending desktop notifications, and for interacting with
PackageKit.
Could you please run package-update-indicator in debug mode, i.e.
run

    $ package-update-indicator --quit

and then

    $ package-update-indicator --debug

for a while and attach the output here?
Thanks,
