The issue you are seeing, is that we've added the recently backported
version of systemd (230 vs 215) to our beagleboard.org debian jessie


Since one of the systemd 230 dependices requires another tool to be
installed, for a full update via:

sudo apt-get update ; sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Then "libudev-dev" will correctly install.
