Another day, another systemd problem

Another system upgrade gives me another systemd related problem. I ran apt-get upgrade and got this:

Message from syslogd@euserv at Jun 1 13:03:34 ...
kernel:[8369383.731017] systemd[1]: segfault at 810 ip 000055c743d66456 sp 00007fff5404fa60 error 6 in systemd[55c743cfa000+122000]
Failed to execute operation: Die Verbindung wurde vom Kommunikationspartner zurückgesetzt

Failed to execute operation: Die Wartezeit für die Verbindung ist abgelaufen
Failed to execute operation: Activation of org.freedesktop.systemd1 timed out

So, first thing is to retry the upgrade.

udev (215-17+deb8u4) wird eingerichtet ...
addgroup: Die Gruppe »input« existiert bereits als Systemgruppe. Programmende.

Failed to execute operation: Activation of org.freedesktop.systemd1 timed out
Failed to execute operation: Activation of org.freedesktop.systemd1 timed out
Failed to restart udev.service: Die Wartezeit für die Verbindung ist abgelaufen
invoke-rc.d: initscript udev, action "restart" failed.

Did not work either. Found [SOLVED]Debian 8.1: can’t process updates for udev & systemd that adviced a reboot. I wanted to read the mentioned error message:

root@host:~# reboot
Failed to start reboot.target: Die Wartezeit für die Verbindung ist abgelaufen
Failed to open initctl FIFO: Kein passendes Gerät bzw. keine passende Adresse gefunden
Failed to talk to init daemon.

Then force it:

root@host:~# reboot -f
Rebooting.

After this I login again, apt-get install -f and update is okay.

As you see I’m still willing to use systemd. But it’s wired how many problems it may cause, that did not exist before.
