    Got this last night on one of my servers:

    Code:
    Maintenance ended; however, it did not exit cleanly (256). The following events were logged: “scripts/find_outdated_services”. Review the update logs to determine why the update failed.
    
    [2019-05-21 07:29:21 -0400] E [/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/find_outdated_services] The “/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/find_outdated_services --auto” command (process 43681) reported error number 255 when it ended.
    As suggested on an older thread with a similar issue, I ran the command manually and below was the result:

    Code:
    root@host [~]# /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/find_outdated_services
    Looking for outdated services …

    Based on this and pinging the repository it looks like it's offline:

    Code:
    # ping syspackages.sourcedns.com
    PING syspackages.sourcedns.com (10.254.254.254) 56(84) bytes of data.
    From et-0-0-1-244.cr11-dal3.ip4.gtt.net (69.174.22.113) icmp_seq=2 Destination Net Unreachable
    ^C
    --- syspackages.sourcedns.com ping statistics ---
    8 packets transmitted, 0 received, +1 errors, 100% packet loss, time 7000ms
    I'd suggest disabling the repository in /etc/yum.repos.d/ by changing "enabled=1" to "enabled=0" in the file associated with that repo
