I am having this exact same problem. I try to disable anonymous ftp in the WHM Main >> Service Configuration >> FTP Configuration screen and I get this error, and anonymous ftp is still enabled:
################################################
Disabling Anonymous Ftp [an error occurred while processing this directive]
Complete!! Updating ftp passwords for all users Ftp password files updated. Ftp vhost passwords synced
Attempting to restart ftpserver
Waiting for ftpserver to restart.... . . . . . . . . . . finished.
ftpserver status

ftpserver started ok
################################################

has anyone come up with a fix for this? I've tried setting up an /etc/ftpuser file as suggested in another thread, and I have no /etc/pureftpd.conf file to edit as another thread suggested, so I'm at a loss.

I'm using WHM 10.8.0 cPanel 10.8.1-R113
FreeBSD 4.9-RELEASE i386 - WHM X v3.1.0

Help?
