I too had fail2ban fail after an otherwise successful yum update. Mine 
occurred in Feb when my versions of firewalld etc were updated to the 
versions you show. Thus far I have not had the opportunity to sort the 
problem. Lockdown has been quite busy so far, hopefully some slower 
times coming next week.
