Operation not permitted) while reading upstream - error log is filled with tons of these

Ok, found it. It was a permission issue. I did not have the uid and gid in the fstab, I set that the the www-data user that nginx is running as and the errors went away. I’m just not sure I understand how it made the cache files/directories in the first place. But clearly this is a problem when the cache is on a CIFS mount. I reverted to have the cache write to a local drive and there was no problem.
So I ended up on this page which led to the solution
Thank you for the suggestion, that’s actually where I started after you mentioned it to end up where I did.

As usual, try disabling selinux if it’s active. If that helps, investigate audit log..

I then created the folder /main/ inside that, this is the folder I deleted and on restart nginx created. Which makes me think that there is no permission problem but instead some other underlying problem that is throwing this false error. The cache gzip files are being made and the folder path for 2:2:2 is being created.
