cron issue

I've set up a cron job to run logwatch at night. 

Output from command /usr/sbin/logwatch --mailto=....


/var/cache/logwatch No such file or directory at /usr/sbin/logwatch
line 634.

and line 634 is:

opendir(TMPDIR, $Config{'tmpdir'}) or die "$Config{'tmpdir'} $!";

I don't understand what file is missing. I can confirm
that /var/cache/logwatch doesn't exist. Should I just arbitrarily make
one? Is it an install error? I've just installed the system, U18.04, up
to date.

Ideas welcome.


In modern fantasy (literary or governmental), killing people is the
usual solution to the so-called war between good and evil. My books are
not conceived in terms of such a war, and offer no simple answers to
simplistic questions.
