After discussing on IRC, this might be related to the kernel.
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.
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...
