Fedora 16: Could not downgrade policy file (selinux-policy-targeted)

Hi all,

I'm getting the following error when doing a "yum update" of my Fedora 16 installation:

Updating : selinux-policy-targeted-3.10.0-89.fc16.noarch
SELinux: Could not downgrade policy file /etc/selinux/targeted/policy/policy.26, searching for an older version.
SELinux: Could not open policy file <= /etc/selinux/targeted/policy/policy.26: No such file or directory
load_policy: Can't load policy: No such file or directory

I haven't been able to find a solution on the web or on here, although it does seem to have happened to others. Some people reported trying "yum reinstall selinux-policy-targeted" but that didn't help.

Anyone else experienced this? Any suggestions as to a fix?

Thanks in advance.

there should be a gold star poping up
that is "SELinuxTroubleShooter"

a warning if you run "SELinuxTroubleShooter"

in that warning should be the instructions on fixing it

also look in the SElinux error log
/var/log/selinux.?????? something
