Glad I'm not alone. Both are enabled.

scotts-mbp:~ scottdiehl$ csrutil status
System Integrity Protection status: enabled.

scotts-mbp:~ scottdiehl$ spctl --status
assessments enabled

I really appreciate your time and expertise debugging. Let me know what more I can do to help get through this.

Thanks.

Do you have any third-party kernel extensions installed? You can check with

Code: Select all

kextstat | grep -v com.apple

Also, are there any errors logged in the Console app when you try to give permissions to a directory?

Hello, I have faced totally same issue. I bought Pro apps from App store but I coundn't use it once. I do nothing with my Mac file system but it rejected selecting any folders.

I executed the command above and the results are:

Code: Select all

kbMBP:~ we$ csrutil status
System Integrity Protection status: enabled.

kbMBP:~ we$ spctl --status
assessments enabled
Please give me advice. Thank you.

Maybe some of my apps are conflict with Filezilla Pro. I'm testing apps which mount cloud drives to my Mac.

Code: Select all

I'm testing apps which mount cloud drives to my Mac.
That could be a possible explanation. I can see how a kernel extension not implementing a particular ioctl could result in this.

Of the listed kernel extensions you listed, I think these are the most likely to cause problems:

Code: Select all

   82    2 0xffffff7f8107e000 0xf000     0xf000     com.symantec.internetSecurity.kext (14.0.1f214) 6F5043C0-B4BC-3F78-A3BB-9D895B049B29 <5 4 3 1>
   83    0 0xffffff7f8108d000 0x18000    0x18000    com.symantec.nfm.kext (14.0.1f214) 42BE2C0D-3EDA-3B1B-89F7-36A0A7D51170 <82 5 4 3 1>
   84    0 0xffffff7f810cc000 0x6b000    0x6b000    com.symantec.ips.kext (14.0.1f214) no UUID <82 5 4 3 1>
  234    0 0xffffff7f84a9d000 0x15000    0x15000    com.google.dfsfuse.filesystems.dfsfuse (3.7.4) 6ACB4FE9-419E-3B09-9D04-A39C77D5816D <7 5 4 3 1>
  247    0 0xffffff7f84ac3000 0x19000    0x19000    com.github.osxfuse.filesystems.osxfuse (3.7.1) 8C89BD7B-DA6D-347D-AC76-759C45AE6099 <7 5 4 3 1>
Could you please try to uninstall these extensions and check if the issue has gone or if it persists?

Same question as before, which kernel extensions have you installed? What happens if you remove all third-party kernel extensions?

I'm having a similar issue with my key file.

Where is your key file located? What happens if you move it to a different location?

This one should be fine to keep, it's not interfering with filesystem stuff.

My key file is located on my hard drive. I create an alias of my school folder on my desktop and store the actual folder in my user folder on the Macintosh HD. It's currently at /Users/*username*/School/Spring 2019/Intro to Databases/. I moved the file to /Users/*username*/ and I get the same error. I select my file and get the error: "Could not create security-scoped bookmark from URL: The file "keyfile.pem" couldn't be opened." When I go to my Directory access permissions I currently have "/, /Users/*username*/School/, and /Users/*username*/School/Intro to Databases/".

EDIT:

I downloaded the free version of FileZilla off of the main website and it works perfectly. My problem only is on FileZilla Pro that I downloaded from the App Store.

Here is the output. I posted it on pastebin because it was a lot of text. https://pastebin.com/GcPwJ240

All looks normal.

I wonder if this issue persists if you reinstall macOS.
