You need to make sure that /usr/lib64/chromium/chrome-sandbox is
owned by root and has mode 4755.

I have:
l /usr/lib64/chromium/chrome-sandbox

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 24 Sep 23 11:43
/usr/lib64/chromium/chrome-sandbox -> ../../lib/chrome_sandbox*

I believe 4755 would be -rwsr-xr-x

Your's failing and my succeeding I would not think indicates a
packaging error, but perhaps changing your perms will allow
install. It would really be simple to try:
chmod 777 /usr/lib64/chromium/chrome-sandbox

then try the update and see if the script still fails.

the chmod is incorrect, it should be as the error reported, I
imagine. I don't know why my link has the incorrect mode but it does
work and I didn't change it, ever. /usr/lib/chrome_sandbox which the
link points is indeed 4755.

Someone with a better understanding the me will have to advise

Thanks again for the feedback, Patrick. We were thinking along the same
lines. I ultimately ran chmod 4755 on /usr/lib/chrome_sandbox and
chromium launches ... it complains about not being able to connect to
kwallet, though.
