I have started getting several Permissions issues that Disk Utility says that it fixes, but does not.

Are the problems found in the attached report serious? Can they be fixed?

The first bunch of those are normal and you can ignore them.

For the ACL errors, try this.

Do a command-r boot to recovery. Once in recovery click the Utilities menu and launch Terminal. Now type in resetpassword (all one word with no spaces) and enter.



You will get this screen. Select Macintosh HD then pick your user name in the drop down. Leave the password fields blank since we don't want to mess with that. Now click the Reset button at the lower right. Now reboot from the menu.

Thanks... I followed your instructions, but after restart, still getting the exact same output in Disk Utility?

it is likely harmless, but try running this Terminal command to reset the ACLs in the shared folder if it bothers you seeing the error.

Code:
sudo chmod -RN ~/Users/Shared
