:SELinux is preventing /bin/systemctl from 'getattr' accesses on the directory /lib/systemd/system.
:*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If you believe that systemctl should be allowed getattr access on the system 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:
:# grep systemctl /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp
