do-agent cron output

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

/etc/cron.daily/do-agent: debconf: unable to initialize frontend: Dialog debconf: (TERM is not set, so the dialog frontend is not usable.) debconf: falling back to frontend: Readline debconf: unable to initialize frontend: Readline debconf: (This frontend requires a controlling tty.) debconf: falling back to frontend: Teletype dpkg-preconfigure: unable to re-open stdin: (Reading database … 140933 files and directories currently installed.)

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

thanks

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.
