These errors are filling the event log but does not seem to cause any issues, and all health is reported green.

We would like to fix the root cause for this to reduce noise in the logs.
You can turn on the ACL support to get rid of these logs. Impala checks if any ACLs exist on files/dirs as part of its permission checks, but if the NameNode receives an ACL read request but finds that the feature has not been enabled it logs that message and returns an ACLException. Impala is designed to accept such a thing as response and continue onwards assuming no ACLs exist, but it still results in the log print.
If you turn the ACL config on via the property the logging indicates, it won't cause harm, cause the only operation Impala is doing is to check if an ACL exists (does not set any unless you intend it to via Sentry HDFS ACL sync or manually).
