Description Jerry James 2013-07-09 17:36:10 EDT
Description of problem:
Saw this in a Rawhide update:

[1373404686] libunbound[21588:0] error: could not open autotrust file for writing, /var/lib/unbound/root.key.21588-0: Permission denied

# ls -al /var/lib/unbound
total 12
drwxr-xr-x.  2 root    root    4096 Apr 22 16:17 .
drwxr-xr-x. 54 root    root    4096 Jul  3 14:48 ..
-rw-r--r--.  1 unbound unbound  758 Apr 22 16:17 root.key

So the unbound user can't write to that directory.  Who owns it anyway?

# rpm -qf /var/lib/unbound
file /var/lib/unbound is not owned by any package

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run the unbound-libs %post script

Actual results:
An error message similar to the one above.

Expected results:
No error.

/var/lib/unbound is owned by unbound-libs package.

$ rpm -qlp unbound-libs-1.4.20-15.fc20.x86_64.rpm

Please try to reinstall of remove/install unbound. I think that your issue is
probably caused by some remains of older package/system (I can see Apr 22 there).

Sure enough, reinstalling unbound-libs made the problem go away.  Thanks, Tomas!
