ls: cannot access /etc/nagios-plugins/config/check_nrpe.cfg: No such file or 
Anyways .. I updated most of the check definitions, only apt.cfg and vsz.cfg 
was untouched. So it's not surprisingly that there are newer timestamps, but 
your should be files only touched if you ucf allows todo so.

.ucf-dist files are the files the packages ships with, but wasn't allowed to 
update via ucf:

diff -Nur /etc/nagios-plugins/config/dummy.cfg /etc/nagios-plugins/config/dummy.cfg.ucf-dist
