After I performed a
dist-upgrade on a Debian testing (Jessie) instance, I can no longer boot. I'm marooned at the command prompt:
Welcome to emergency mode! After logging in, type "journalctl -xb" to view system logs
The following error shows up:
root@debian:~# journalctl -xb debian systemd: Failed at step EXEC spawning /bin/plymouth: No such file or directory
Surprisingly, Google is not helping and the little thread I see are for Arch (even if I add +debian in my search) and don't make sense to me.
Any pointer on how to recover from this?
