Also, the actual update is not done by systemd. I believe that you need
to have packagekit installed (and I suppose that the /system-update file
needed to trigger the whole thing is also set by packagekit). Check with:
 systemctl list-dependencies system-update.target

On my machine, I don't have anything other than sysinit.target.
