Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/bash from 'read' accesses on the directory /sys/fs/pstore.

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

If you want to fix the label. 
/sys/fs/pstore default label should be sysfs_t.
Then you can run restorecon.
# /sbin/restorecon -v /sys/fs/pstore

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

If you believe that bash should be allowed read access on the pstore directory 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 abrt-harvest-ue /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
