    Every morning I get a cron email titled "Cron <root@vps1> yum clean all; yum update -y"

    it has the contents of
    Code:
    Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, priorities, security Cleaning repos: kernelcare stable-arch stable-generic stable-noarch system-base
                  : system-extras system-updates-released Cleaning up Everything Cleaning up list of fastest mirrors Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, priorities, security Setting up Update Process Determining fastest mirrors
    3 packages excluded due to repository priority protections No Packages marked for Update
    
    I have tried to null route all crontabs for root but still getting the email. Any suggestions?

    Hello,

    Do you have any cron jobs in your /etc/cron.d or /etc/cron.daily directories that run those commands?

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    You could remove the cron job if it's not used for any other purpose. It's not a cron job that comes standard with CentOS or cPanel.

    Thank you.
