I have a pi 4b.

I added a new admin as explained in https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/configuration/security.md, it has access to all those groups.

I locked the pi user:

sudo usermod --lock pi

I rebooted.

Now, when I'm with my brand new admin user, if I want to reboot the system (or actually do anything systemctl-related), it says:

➤ systemctl reboot
==== AUTHENTICATING FOR org.freedesktop.login1.set-wall-message ===
Authentication is required to set a wall message
Multiple identities can be used for authentication:
 1.  ,,, (pi)
 2.  root
Choose identity to authenticate as (1-2): 

It seems like only pi and root can authenticate to manage the system... But my user is an admin too!:

➤ groups
myuser adm dialout cdrom sudo audio video plugdev games users input netdev gpio i2c spi

Graphically it's the same. When I want to reboot:

How can I add myuser to that list?
