This is... odd.

>From my workstation, where I'm directly logged in, if I ssh to any CentOS
7 box, as myself, and try to run man, it fails.
Example 1:
 man dd
cannot write to /var/cache/man/cat1/dd.1.gz in catman mode

Example 2:
 man dd
man: can't chmod (null): Bad address
man: can't unlink (null): Bad address

In all cases, if I sudo -s to root, I have no trouble reading the manpage.
In all cases I've tried, selinux is in permissive mode.

>From one of these boxes:
ls -laF /var/cache/man/ | more
total 832
drwxr-xr-x. 38 root root   4096 Jan 27 07:52 ./
drwxr-xr-x.  9 root root    105 Dec 28 12:42 ../
-rw-r--r--.  1 root root    190 Dec 28 13:18 CACHEDIR.TAG
drwxr-xr-x.  4 root root     62 Jan 27 07:52 ca/
drwxr-xr-x.  2 root root     20 Jan 27 11:27 cat1/

But it's the same in CentOS 6. Clues?
