firewall-cmd --reload errors

Let's assume a rule like this:

firewall-cmd --zone=FedoraWorkstation --permanent --add-rich-rule='rule source mac="11:22:33:44:55:66" reject'


But reloading with firewall-cmd --reload lead to a series of errors as per the attached file, starting with

Error: COMMAND_FAILED: 'python-nftables' failed: internal:0:0-0: Error: Could not process rule: No such file or directory

The same steps on Fedora 31 seem to work.

sudo firewall-cmd --zone=FedoraWorkstation --list-rich-rules
rule source mac="11:22:33:44:55:66" drop

Comment 1 Alessio 2020-06-05 16:26:48 UTC
In addition, inserting that rule, firewalld is unable to restart.
The only way to solve the issue is manually editing the zone file in /etc/firewalls/zones

Comment 2 Eric Garver 2020-06-09 12:34:06 UTC
This has been fixed upstream.
