      The `hadoop fs -ls` command now prints "Permission denied" rather than "No such file or directory" when the user doesn't have permission to traverse the path.

      <!-- markdown --> The `hadoop fs -ls` command now prints "Permission denied" rather than "No such file or directory" when the user doesn't have permission to traverse the path.

    Description

      When the user doesn't have access permission to the local directory, the "hadoop fs -put" command prints a confusing error message "No such file or directory".

      $ whoami
      systest
      $ cd /home/systest
      $ ls -ld .
      drwx------. 4 systest systest 4096 Jan 13 14:21 .
      $ mkdir d1
      $ sudo -u hdfs hadoop fs -put d1 /tmp
      put: `d1': No such file or directory
      

      It will be more informative if the message is:

      put: d1 (Permission denied)
      

      If the source is a local file, the error message is ok:

      put: f1 (Permission denied)
