I am not a Ubuntu Advantage subscriber but there's this systemd unit active and waiting on my 21.04

 ua-messaging.timer    loaded active waiting   Ubuntu Advantage update messaging

Ubuntu Advantage I understand is a program for enterprise support.

I some part of UA important for a civilian user's installation or is this installed as a convenience for optional UA enrollment? If the latter, I assume it can be removed?


Simply remove it by

sudo apt-get autopurge ubuntu-advantage-tools

I have just checked my supported and not-EOL Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.
It has ua-messaging.timer from ubuntu-advantage-tools package installed too.
So I have reported bug 1928604 to launchpad.
