Cron Daemon Errors

I am getting the following via email from Cron Daemon.

Subject Line: test -x /usr/sbin/anacron || ( cd / && run-parts --report /etc/cron.daily )
Email Body: run-parts: /etc/cron.daily/ntpdate exited with return code 1

Running Debian 9.11 New Default Install
Everything seems to be working great.

Any idea on why these are being reported?


Also kudos on the name, Hestia. Had to look it up and then it made sense!

Welcome to Hestia Forum @Mark_O_Polo

The issue you are describing has been already fixed:

Please try to upgrade Roundcube to version: 1.4-rc2.

Thanks for the reply.

Not sure I want to install the latest Roundcube as it’s a Beta. Stable version - 1.3.10 doesn’t necessarily seem to have the fix, so if there is no risk, might just let it do it nightly output error.

What about the ntpdate error what is that related to? I looked at the configs and ran a manual

ntpdate -q

which as expected responds with no errors. So not sure why that is throwing a 1.


Unfortunately, I don’t have further info regarding that issue as I prefer Rainloop over Roundcube.

One more point. How did you receive the e-mail from Cron Daemon - using local “mail” or via root/catchall @ yourdomain.tld e-mail account?

Thank you.

Picked up by catchall. Says, sent via [email protected]_servername.domain.tld
