I have found that 3.8.x may have problems with env vars not being available 
to cron. Please try editing:

sudo vi /home/koha/.bashrc

Add the following two lines:

export PERL5LIB=/usr/share/koha/lib
export KOHA_CONF=/etc/koha/koha-conf.xml

then reboot your server.  This in itself cannot do any harm, and could well 
cure your problem.
