Bug Description

$ systemctl list-units --failed
setvtrgb.service loaded failed failed Set console scheme

[Impact]
 * Default installations boot degraded by default; therefore prevent noticing when systems are fully booted / if there is something else that is failing.

[Test Case]
 * Install updated console-setup-linux
 * Reboot
 * The system should come up as running ($ systemctl is-system-running)

This can be resolved by cherrypicking:

console-setup (1.142ubuntu5) yakkety; urgency=medium

  * debian/console-setup-linux.setvtrgb.service: add condition to only
    execute when /dev/tty0 exists. This is the same condition as used by
    getty@.service unit to prevent attempting setting up VT when none are
    present. This is a common case on serial only architectures and
    virtual machines. Resolves degraded boots on s390x/ppc64el.
