Well, very very good "guessing", you nailed it perfectly.

dellT3620:~> grep -r /usr/bin/updatedb /etc/apparmor.d/
/etc/apparmor.d/usr.bin.updatedb.orig:/usr/bin/updatedb {
/etc/apparmor.d/usr.bin.updatedb.orig: /usr/bin/updatedb mr,
/etc/apparmor.d/usr.bin.updatedb:/usr/bin/updatedb {
/etc/apparmor.d/usr.bin.updatedb: /usr/bin/updatedb mr,

Moving the .orig backup file elsewhere, and doing the same for
locate.orig file, then another "rcapparmor reload", and all is
seemingly back to normal, update and locate both work fine on the local
db. I guess I am going to have to change my method of naming backup
copies of edited system files :-/

Thank you very much!
