Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing mandb from 'search' accesses on the directory /var/lib/snapd.

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

If you believe that mandb should be allowed search access on the snapd directory 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 'mandb' --raw | audit2allow -M my-mandb
# semodule -X 300 -i my-mandb.pp

Comment 1 Zdenek Pytela 2019-12-18 16:20:56 UTC

You don't seem to have the snappy selinux module installed or active. It can be a package missing, or a clash with some previously installed custom container-selinux module.

1. ensure the subpackage is installed:
rpm -q snapd-selinux
2. check the active modules:
semodule -lfull|grep -e snappy -e container
3. list all modules with prio 200:
ls -l /var/lib/selinux/targeted/active/modules/200/
