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

  * 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

  add a motd script for news

  Fix Released
Status in base-files source package in Xenial:

Bug description:
  Add a new update-motd script for printing news and/or important

  == SRU ==

  We should add important security messages or other news to the MOTD.

  Login to the system and ensure that the "news" section of the motd is 
displayed.  Note that you might need to force trigger an update by running 
'sudo update-motd'.

  No reasonable regression potential.  The script simply prints 2 lines of text 
to the MOTD.
