This build failed on docker hub due to the following error:

[91mError unpacking rpm package httpd-2.4.6-40.el7.centos.x86_64
�[0m�[91m �[0m error: unpacking of archive failed on file /usr/sbin/suexec: cpio: cap_set_file

In this issue you can find a comment of @thaJeztah where he points out, that this is a problem with AUFS

This is not a bug in Docker, but an issue with older AUFS versions missing CONFIG_AUFS_XATTR support. To resolve the issue, update the AUFS version and enable the CONFIG_AUFS_XATTR attribute, or switch to another storage driver.

I'm not sure what you guys changed in your infrastructure, but my apache-image fails with the same error. The last time it build correcly is ~ 2 months ago without any change to the docker file - I guess.

Can you please have a look into this? Thanks a lot in advance.
