Error during weekly cron job

December 22, 2014 1.1k views

In one of my droplets, the weekly system cron job has started throwing the following error. Wondering if anyone has run across it, or something similar. It seems to be complaining about a missing file, but I've checked and it's clearly in that directory. And I've compared it with the same file in another droplet and their content/permissions are the same:
