Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing /usr/lib/cups/backend/mfp from read, write access on the file /SYSVeca86420 (deleted).

*****  Plugin restorecon (99.5 confidence) suggests  *************************

If you want to fix the label. 
/SYSVeca86420 (deleted) default label should be etc_runtime_t.
Then you can run restorecon.
# /sbin/restorecon -v /SYSVeca86420 (deleted)

*****  Plugin catchall (1.49 confidence) suggests  ***************************

If you believe that mfp should be allowed read write access on the SYSVeca86420 (deleted) 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 mfp /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
