Description mb272936 2019-07-29 04:28:29 UTC
Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing (updatedb) from 'mount' accesses on the filesystem /.

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

If you believe that (updatedb) should be allowed mount access on the  filesystem 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 '(updatedb)' --raw | audit2allow -M my-updatedb
# semodule -X 300 -i my-updatedb.pp

Could you please run:
# restorecon -Rv /

and then try to reproduce the issue? 

It looks like your system is mislabeled. Did you do any migration or upgrade in recent past? 


Comment 3 mb272936 2019-10-24 02:36:13 UTC
Sorry I failed to reply sooner.  I believe I tried your advice, and I don’t think I’ve seen the error since then.

Thanks for your attention.

In fact this was a new installation on a new laptop.

Comment 5 Lukas Vrabec 2019-10-24 13:33:21 UTC
I see there is no issue, closing the bugzilla.
