I'm running SuperSu 2.82 (latest) and Termux (latest) on Andriod 7.

What is causing the permission denied error below? I get the same error with mount namespace separation turned off (or on) in SuperSU.

The error is not limited to readlink. It applies to all the core commands I tried, including ls:

~ # ls
bash: /data/data/com.termux/files/usr/bin/ls: Permission denied

I get better results with tsu, but then I get a new 'permission denied' error at my next step after readlink:

rclone -v mount mypcloud: /mnt/runtime/write/emulated/0/mypcloud --gid 9997 --dir-perms 0771 --file-perms 0660 --umask=0 --allow-other

2021/10/23 03:30:12 Fatal error: failed to mount FUSE fs: fusermount: fork/exec /system/bin/fusermount: permission denied

It doesn't matter which mountpoint I use. Also, the above permission error is not related to any of the options --gid 9997 --dir-perms 0771 --file-perms 0660 --umask=0:

# mkdir -p /mnt/cloud/mypcloud
# chmod 775 -R /mnt/cloud/
