I've had this email for two days now:

The system detected problems with the following cPanel-provided files that the Packaging System controls:

If you did not make these changes intentionally, execute the following command as the root user to correct them:

/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/check_cpanel_pkgs --fix​

I don't use Python, so I'm not sure what could have happened to break it.

Assuming this is relatively common and I shouldn't be too concerned with a breach or anything, what should I expect when I run check_cpanel_pkgs -- fix ? Is this one of those things that'll be done in 5 seconds, or more like 5 hours? Will I have to restart the server afterward? Anything I risk losing that I need to back up?
