    This sounds unusual. What exact Ubuntu version is that?

    Did you install any other desktop/Windows manager?

    Also, can you please check the file usr/share/polkit-1/actions/com.perfect-privacy.perfect-privacy-vpn.policy

    Look for that line that says

    Code:
    rg.freedesktop.policykit.exec.allow_gui 
    Does it say "TRUE" for this entry? If so, please try changing it to "true".

    Can you try open and installing it with "Ubuntu Software"?
