This bug was fixed in the package base-files - 9.4ubuntu4.11

base-files (9.4ubuntu4.11) xenial; urgency=medium

  * update-motd.d/50-motd-news: add cloud_id to user-agent string
    (LP: #1840946)
  * d/, d/postrm: add missing dh_systemd_enable pieces. This
    completes the fix for LP #1637800
  * d/ do not start the motd-news.service, as it won't be
    in an enabled state anyway, and the timer will run it when needed. This
    addresses the motd-news.service bit in comment #19 of #1637800.

base-files (9.4ubuntu4.10) xenial; urgency=medium

  * Fix syntax error in new base-files postinst code.  LP: #1836236.

base-files (9.4ubuntu4.9) xenial; urgency=medium

  * Backport /etc/update-motd.d/50-motd-news, along with the systemd units
    that are used to keep the local cache file up-to-date.  LP: #1637800
