No problem running the command directly. Do I need to create an account for libexec?
I will do the update. However do I need to create a user in the event the problem isn't cleared with the update?

It won't be cleared with an update. Have a look in /var/cron/tabs/. I'm betting you have a user's crontab there from a user that's been removed.
Just a FYI, I got this from a Digital Ocean "droplet", which I guess wasn't built correctly. Grrr... I will review all the users. Not a bad idea anyway since I didn't do the original installation. I have an even older rev of freebsd where cron works, so I have a reference.
