Description of problem:
Reported in SELinux troubleshooter
SELinux is preventing BackupPC_Admin from 'write' accesses on the file LOCK.

*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests   **************************

If you believe that BackupPC_Admin should be allowed write access on the LOCK 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:
# ausearch -c 'BackupPC_Admin' --raw | audit2allow -M my-BackupPCAdmin
# semodule -X 300 -i my-BackupPCAdmin.pp
