Since installing the new do-agent I get the following output from anacron:
cron command: test -x /usr/sbin/anacron || ( cd / && run-parts –report /etc/cron.daily

debconf: unable to initialize frontend: Dialog
debconf: (TERM is not set, so the dialog frontend is not usable.)
debconf: falling back to frontend: Readline

Is this indicating a problem? If not, how can I silence the output?

That looks very similar to the output when I installed the new metrics agent on 16.04, it looks like it performed an automatic update on your system, and you are seeing the typical verbose output from the installer

Thanks, that seems right.
