This suggests that your filesystem is not labeled correctly, e.g. if you
disabled SELinux earlier and installed some updates (like glibc), then
those files wouldn't have the necessary security labels.  You can
selectively relabel files or directories via restorecon,
e.g. /sbin/restorecon -R /lib, but you may need to perform a full
filesystem relabel to ensure complete coverage (touch /.autorelabel;
reboot).  If even that doesn't work, boot with "enforcing=0 single" on
the kernel command line to come up in permissive mode (don't deny
anything, just log) and in single-user mode, and then run "fixfiles
relabel", then reboot.
