Logrotate uses wrong command

Bug Description


In Ubuntu 1204, the 'su' option is not implemented.

This results in an error,

error: icinga2:4 unknown option 'su' -- ignoring line
error: icinga2:4 unexpected text
error: icinga2:20 unknown option 'su' -- ignoring line
error: icinga2:20 unexpected text

It can be fixed by commenting out the su nagios nagios lines in /etc/logrotate.d/icinga2

I tested this setting with logrotate -vf /etc/logrotate.d/icinga2

And found that all new as well as logrotated files had the same permissions as before.

This leads me to think that these lines can safely be removed from Ubuntu packages.
