Comment 2 Milos Malik 2018-07-09 10:25:53 UTC
The /etc/ file is mislabeled, because SELinux denials mentioned above show tcontext=system_u:object_r:etc_t:s0. Correct label is:

# matchpathcon /etc/ 
/etc/	system_u:object_r:ld_so_cache_t:s0

Please run following command, which corrects the label:

# restorecon -Rv /etc
