Are we looking at the same USER_AGENT string? I ran the block of code from `update-motd.d/50-motd-news` on my laptop that constructs the USER_AGENT variable that's sent to motd.ubuntu.com and it looks like this: "curl/7.47.0-1ubuntu2.2 Ubuntu/16.04.2/LTS GNU/Linux/4.7.0-040700-generic/x86_64 Intel(R)/Core(TM)/i7-7500U/CPU/@/2.70GHz uptime/1499911.84/3827524.62" not what's described at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_agent and not what you pasted above. Reading the comments in the code, it's clear that it's being used to craft the response, but what's not clear is if Canonical is collecting the server information... If they are, I think it's fair to make that apparent. That's all.
