Am also experiencing this from about 30 Ubuntu 16.04 machines in our
office. We get very regular e-mails that the flash plugin was updated,
and there's no "normal" way to silence them. As a workaround, we change
/etc/cron.daily/update-notifier-common to send its output to
`/dev/null`, but this will be rolled back with an change of update-
notifier.

I think that the last patch, posted by Roman Odaisky, will fix part of
the issue. However, for the Flash player, at some point, `apt` is called
which also produces output that is e-mailed in cron. It might be best to
just change the cronjob to redirect its output (perhaps also stderr) to
some log file.

** Summary changed:

- "ttf-mscorefonts-installer: processing..." email message repeatedly from 
/etc/cron.daily/update-notifier-common
+ Cronjob /etc/cron.daily/update-notifier-common sends too many e-mail messages
