It depends on NetworkManager-glib, not NetworkManager. And it does so
to check the status of the network connection before checking for
updates. I believe that if NetworkManager doesn't respond (because
you're bringing up your network some other way), it will continue on as
though the connection is said to be up by NM.
Yes, latest PackageKit will correctly operate if NetworkManager is not
running. For F9 you might still need to get packages from -updates-testing
