Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:
I tried running 'control-center --verbose' from terminal but I am not able to to click Unlock button in step 4. it looks like it is disabled somehow

Comment 2 Martin Krajnak 2018-06-27 10:22:57 UTC
I also tried to add user via terminal:
sudo useradd test2

the user is created and it is shown in control center but when I try to delete him, the same error message is shown

Comment 3 Martin Krajnak 2018-06-27 10:24:45 UTC
the reproducer is working in RHEL 7.5

Comment 5 Martin Krajnak 2018-06-27 11:27:31 UTC
ok I was pointed out by vbenes that it is caused by Selinux

SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/useradd from map access on the file /usr/sbin/useradd.

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

If you believe that useradd should be allowed map access on the useradd 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 'useradd' --raw | audit2allow -M my-useradd
# semodule -i my-useradd.pp
