    The error message is showing that there is problem in crontab file at line number 5.
    You have to edit crontab file using following command and correct the cron.
    Code:
    crontab -e

    Hello,

    The previous posts are correct. Check line 5 when editing your root crontab with the "crontab -e" command to verify it's a valid entry.

    Thank you.
