:SELinux is preventing /usr/libexec/polkit-1/polkitd from 'getattr' accesses on the file /etc/passwd.
:*****  Plugin restorecon (99.5 confidence) suggests  *************************
:If you want to fix the label. 
:/etc/passwd default label should be passwd_file_t.
:Then you can run restorecon.
:# /sbin/restorecon -v /etc/passwd
:*****  Plugin catchall (1.49 confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If you believe that polkitd should be allowed getattr access on the passwd file 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 polkitd /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp
