Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing accounts-daemon from 'getattr' accesses on the file /etc/passwd.

*****  Plugin restorecon (99.5 confidence) suggests   ************************

If you want to fix the label. 
/etc/passwd default label should be passwd_file_t.
Then you can run restorecon.
# /sbin/restorecon -v /etc/passwd

*****  Plugin catchall (1.49 confidence) suggests   **************************

If you believe that accounts-daemon should be allowed getattr access on the passwd file by default.
Then you should report this as a bug.
You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
allow this access for now by executing:
# grep accounts-daemon /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

Seems like your system is mislabled.  THere was a Rawhide/F21 bug that could have cuased this.

touch /.autorelabel; reboot

Should fix the problem

This is caused by a systemd bug which should be fixed.
