This one is weird and unexpected. Your relay can't do any dns resolves
of its own if it can't read that file. For a non-exit relay (which you
appear to be), that's not so bad.

As for why that might happen, my first thought is some sort of apparmor
permissions that intercept the file access attempt and block it.

This one is most likely something on your network trying to attack or
censor or intercept your outgoing traffic. Maybe there is something
that calls itself antivirus, or firewall, or web cleaner, or something
like that? Or maybe your ISP or your country does something like that
'for' you automatically?

A possible reason why the relay wasn't listed as Running was that there
were three different relays running at that IP address in the past day,
and Tor tries to limit to at most two relays per IP address.

Anyway, it looks like it is now listed.
