Probably a conflict between one of my modules and a policy update, caused
a policy update to only be partially done and then I couldn't even remove
my custom modules (using) semodule -r. So I used the recovery procedure
recommended by Dan to get back to just the normal policy, fixed my local
changes and added them back.

Most likely this was the cause of problems, but I'll keep an eye on it.
