I guess you have been dropped into the rescue shell.
At this point no system services (including rsyslog) are running.
So this is not surprising that there is no /var/log/syslog.

Anyway, with that little of information it is basically impossible to
say what's going wrong on your system. It even lacks basic information
like what version of Debian you are using, what version of systemd etc.
As for getting a more verbose debug log, there is plenty of
documentation which is easily found by google.

You mentioned, that you use some sort of encryption.
Posting more details (fstab, cryptab, etc) might help.
I suspect your problem is related to that.

I'm posting this from a system where systemd works like a bliss.

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
