Fixing zmsaupdate in Zimbra 8.8 Patch 20/21

In Zimbra 8.8 Patch 20 and 21, the zmsaupdate script is broken: Due to an updated version of SpamAssassin, the script fails with the following message:

zmsaupdate: Error code downloading update: 2

This is caused by the sa-update program not accepting the --allowplugins option any longer, so that option simply has to be removed from the script in /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmsaupdate.

Find the following line in the script:

my $sa="/opt/zimbra/common/bin/sa-update -v --allowplugins --refreshmirrors >/dev/null 2>&1";

And change it to:

my $sa="/opt/zimbra/common/bin/sa-update -v --refreshmirrors >/dev/null 2>&1";

This will fix the problem.
