A smoother transition in Debian

About a month ago a transition in Debian took a wrong turn for systemd users. This ended in systemd users who where unable to shutdown there system, but recently a newer version was uploaded to unstable solving this issue. So time to unlock the block packages and upgrading systemd to version 37-1.1 and blocked packages.

$ echo "bootlogd install" | sudo dpkg --set-selections
$ echo "initscripts install" | sudo dpkg --set-selections
$ echo "sysvinit install" | sudo dpkg --set-selections
$ echo "sysvinit-utils install" | sudo dpkg --set-selections
$ echo "sysv-rc install" | sudo dpkg --set-selections
$ sudo apt-get install -t unstable systemd libpam-systemd libsystemd-daemon0 libsystemd-login0 bootlogd initscripts sysv-rc sysvinit sysvinit-utils

Only remark after upgrade as for the last time a normal reboot isn’t possible since the system already looks at the new location, but a `halt -f` solves that.
