Comment 1 Pierre-YvesChibon 2013-02-13 12:47:57 UTC
After discussing on IRC, this might be related to the kernel.

Comment 2 Pádraig Brady 2013-02-13 21:38:34 UTC
There was a problem with rpm-4.10.2-2 that caused it to remove the /etc/mtab symlink, which in turn might give the error above. Could you ensure /etc/mtab -> /proc/mounts is in place if not.

Comment 3 Ondrej Vasik 2013-02-14 21:00:24 UTC
As Pádraig said, it has nothing to do with coreutils and deleted symlink was reported (problem with rpm, in combination with handling of the symlink in util-linux %post). Anyway, as this issue is already tracked in other bugzilla, closing duplicate...
