I did 'rpm -Uvh --oldpackage libselinux*-1.25.7-1*' and rebooted.

This appears to 'repair': all appears healthy.

Two comments:
   1. During reboot, system detected  need to relabel 'automagically'.
 Relabel completed smoothly and system booted normally.
   2. This is the first relabel I have had to do in many, many, many
months. Allow me to present well deserved kudos to the Selinux/FC

Notably impressed,
Tom London
