Am I getting ddos or is this something else?

Over the last hour I’ve gotten 30+ emails all saying the same thing. Same subject line but nothing shows in the log. I tried to check for updates but am getting its saying it cant update apt then gives me the sources.list

Email subject
Cronroot@ubmediayunohost dyndns update>> /dev/null

No, I think it is related to this: Ongoing outage on our infrastructure
You can comment the line of /etc/cron.d/yunohost-dyndns to avoid the mail. If you have a static Ip, leave like that. If you have a dynamic Ip, when the server will be repaired, you’ll have to uncomment this line again.
