I can start synaptic from terminal with "synaptic-pkexec" but I get this message "Gtk-Message: GtkDialog mapped without a transient parent. This is discouraged." I have no clue what that means.

You can safely ignore the message. However, I just tried executing the same command under Ubuntu-Mate 16.04, and did not see any error messages
