SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/passwd from 'execute' accesses on the file /usr/bin/gnome-keyring-daemon.

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

If you believe that passwd should be allowed execute access on the gnome-keyring-daemon 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 passwd /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
