Summary0005160: no log rotation
DescriptionI noticed that the logs in var/log haven't been rotated since August, hence log files grow bigger and bigger.
Steps To Reproduceview /var/log
Additional Informationuname -a:
Linux kali 4.18.0.kali3-amd64 0000001 SMP Debian 4.18.20-2kali2 (2018-11-30) x86_64 GNU/Linux

In /etc/cron.daily/logrotate I found the lines
# skip in favor of systemd timer
if [ -d /run/systemd/system ]; then
    exit 0
fi
The directory /run/systemd/system exists and hence the script exists right at the beginning.

Commenting these lines out results in the script running now.
