  fsck not running at all on reboot

Status in systemd package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  After upgrading some servers from 16.04 to 18.04 I'm met with a MOTD
  that says:

  *** /dev/xvda1 should be checked for errors ***

  I added "fsck.mode=force" to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT in
  /etc/default/grub before running 'sudo update-grub'. I also verified
  that fsck was present in /boot/grub/grub.cfg afterwards, before
  rebooting the server.

  Surprisingly I was met with the same error message in MOTD when
  logging in. I then ran tune2fs to see when the last check was
  performed and this is the output:

  $ sudo tune2fs -l /dev/xvda1  | grep checked
  Last checked:             Wed Sep 12 16:17:00 2018

  I then tried to change mount count to 1 with tune2fs -c 1 /dev/xvda1,
  but after another reboot I was still met with the same error message
  and the timestamp for last checked was unchanged.

  I have the same problem on all the servers that was upgraded from
  16.04 to 18.04, but also on a new server installed directly with

  In should be mentioned that the servers are AWS EC2 instances, so I
  have no way of trying to run fsck from a liveusb.

  Another user has reported the same issue here:

  I'm not quite sure what information is needed, but attached are some
  basic information about the system.

  Please let me know if you need any any other outputs or logs.

  Edit1: I tested fsck.mode=force on my laptop running Ubuntu 18.04.1
  LTS (Xubuntu) and it works fine. Seems to be related to the server
