    @Infopro:
    Thanks, but those threads are all for older versions. As you can see we're running the latest version of cPanel.
    The problem started to appear as of this morning. The actual upgrade from 11.68.0.13 to 11.68.0.14 was a day earlier and did not have any problems.

    Have you tried forcing a cPanel update to see if it finishes properly? Couldn't hurt to try that.

    We decided to wait for the next run of upcp instead.
    This night's run of upcp did not have the Error!
    Nothing was changed from our end and also cPanel was not updated. Very strange!
