This cron error message hides that mirrorbrain isn't running at all 
now.  See this in

1) appending ".mirrorlist" to a download.sugarlabs.org URL now gives a 
404 (should show a list of mirrors and file metadata)
2) our MirrorMon [1] (which uses data from mirrorbrain) now shows that 
there are no mirrors.  This is a lie, arrnet's still mirroring us [2]

Upon further investigation, it doesn't seem to be even set up properly:

1)  "sudo -u mirrorbrain mb" (mb is mirrorbrain config tool) -> "sudo: 
mb: command not found"
2) from apt.sources.list "#bernie: mirrorbrain no longer supported on 
trusty :-("

So, any preferences for a plan of action?  So far, I can think of:

1)  Compile it from source.  MirrorBrain moves slowly, so my old tut 
about this is still up to date [3].  But this feels so dirty and bad.
2)  Use a Debian 8 docker container.  The mirror brain repos [4] 
include packages for it, so it is just a package manager install in 
that respect.  We can base it off the official docker apache images[5], 
which use debian jessie.
