Your issue seems similar to this recent reported bug. Unfortunately, that bug has not yet receives a response. But, from the output, I'd hypothesize that you may be running into a bug in SELinux (one of which was introduced not long ago, according to this link.

Try disabling SELinux by executing sudo setenforce 0 and then editing /etc/selinux/config so that the line specifying the SELinux mode reads: "SELINUX=disabled". Reboot to apply updates, let us know.
