Most likely cause of this problem is a bad PATH that has /usr/sbin/
before /usr/bin/, meaning that the consolehelper suid utility is *not*
run, but you end up running /usr/sbin/mock directly, which expects to
only ever be run with elevated privs.

Assuming this is the case, there are two possible fixes:

A) fix your path
 or
B) run /usr/bin/mock directly
