I have experienced the same after upgrading to Koha 20.11.03. The issue 
is described in Bug 27820 (plugins_nightly.pl script missing use):

* https://bugs.koha-community.org/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=27820

The issue will be solved in Koha 20.11.04 / Koha 21.05 but I have no 
plans to update to that revision/version. Thus I have just added the 
following lines in file 
"/usr/share/koha/bin/cronjobs/plugins_nightly.pl" and the issue is gone:


use Modern::Perl;

# ANFANG - Admin Kuhn
use Try::Tiny;
use C4::Context;
use C4::Log;
# ENDE - Admin Kuhn
use Koha::Logger;
# ANFANG - Admin Kuhn
use Koha::Plugins;
# ENDE - Admin Kuhn
use Koha::Script -cron;


Hope this helps.
