Bug#817975: dependency problems prevent the configuration of systemd
> The install went fine except for the system upgrade: dpkg stopped because of
> dependency problems of systemd.
> Here the last output (I translated it from German):
> "dpkg: dependency problems prevent the configuration of systemd: systemd
> depends from libsystemd0 (=228-2+b1); but: Version of libsystemd0:amd64 of
> the system is 229-2. ifupdown (0.8.10) damages systemd (<< 228-3^) and is
> installed. The version instelled of systemd is 228-2+b1."
> "WARNING **: Configuring 'pksel' failed with error code 100"
> Downloading the updates, it had downloaded systemd=229-2. I don't know why
> it didn't install it.
> The broken dependency prevented further package install and bootloader
> installation: if I install the bootloader before the system upgrade (expert
> install), the bootloader worked, but it hadn't installed sudo and the root
> user was blocked, thus I wasn't able to do anything
> Works fine: debian-testing-amd64-netinst.iso (daily, today)
> Reproducible: debian-stretch-DI-alpha5-amd64-netinst.iso
> (see log below)
> Looks like a systemd upgrading issue.
> We can continue the installation with:
> # chroot /target apt-get -fy install
> syslog (full log attached)
