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