Cron netdata update script failing

Environment

Debian10, latest netdata agent

Problem/Question

I get the following error when cron.daily runs the netdata-updater script.

/etc/cron.daily/netdata-updater:
/etc/cron.daily/netdata-updater: line 31: /etc/cron.daily/netdata-updater.sh: No such file or directory
run-parts: /etc/cron.daily/netdata-updater exited with return code 127

/etc/cron.daily/netdata-updater is a soft link to /usr/libexec/netdata/netdata-updater.sh

Line 31 of this file constructs a path that is invalid as that file does not exist.

What I expected to happen

This is a known issue, please see: Periodically Anacron job 'cron.daily' on localhost reports a problem with netdata-updater.sh

I updated using kickstart.sh --reinstall as suggested and that seemd to work. However yesterday I began to receive this error report from cron.daily

/etc/cron.daily/netdata-updater:
/tmp/netdata-updater-u2lCku5v4P/netdata-updater.sh: line 354: THIS_SHOULD_BE_REPLACED_BY_INSTALLER_SCRIPT: No such file or directory
run-parts: /etc/cron.daily/netdata-updater exited with return code 1

Did the reinstall not update the updater script?
