This is the same kind of issue as reported in #28684.

Do I understand you correctly: is Android forbids UDP Unix sockets for non-root user?
Maybe the socket path should point on another location to get the test passed?

No, it is the SELinux configuration on android devices that forbids binds to named UNIX sockets. Changing from a named UNIX socket to an unnamed UNIX socket would fix the problem. I don't know if all platforms support unnamed UNIX sockets.

The fix in issue #28684 (referenced in the OP) provides a new decorator to skip the test for platforms such as android.

Please feel free to make a PR for applying @skip_unless_bind_unix_socket decorator.
