The Fix

This error may occur when attempting to connect to a vsftpd FTP server. You simply need to add one line to the configuration file, which this article assumes is in the default location of /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf.

echo 'seccomp_sandbox=NO' >> /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf

Be sure to restart vsftpd:

systemctl restart vsftpd

This error is likely caused by this bug: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=845980. Turning off the Google Seccomp Sandbox for Linux fixes this issue.
