Bug Description

Hi,

here is one error message I see in journalctl on several of my systems:

juin 10 00:17:12 vougeot systemd[1]: plymouth-quit-wait.service: Found ordering cycle on plymouth-quit-wait.service/start
juin 10 00:17:12 vougeot systemd[1]: plymouth-quit-wait.service: Found dependency on plymouth-start.service/start
juin 10 00:17:12 vougeot systemd[1]: plymouth-quit-wait.service: Found dependency on keyboard-setup.service/start
juin 10 00:17:12 vougeot systemd[1]: plymouth-quit-wait.service: Found dependency on plymouth-quit-wait.service/start
juin 10 00:17:12 vougeot systemd[1]: plymouth-quit-wait.service: Breaking ordering cycle by deleting job plymouth-start.service/start
juin 10 00:17:12 vougeot systemd[1]: plymouth-start.service: Job plymouth-start.service/start deleted to break ordering cycle starting with plymouth-quit-wait.service/start

Those messages are then repeated many times.

The machines do boot, but there are random things breaking (network, autologin, ...) and this error message is the first one occurring, therefore I would like to get rid of it before tackling other error messages (there are many!).

Hello Laurent, or anyone else affected,

Accepted console-setup into xenial-proposed. The package will build now and be available at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/console-setup/1.108ubuntu15.2 in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Your feedback will aid us getting this update out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug, mentioning the version of the package you tested, and change the tag from verification-needed to verification-done. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed. In either case, details of your testing will help us make a better decision.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/PerformingSRUVerification . Thank you in advance!

tags: added: verification-needed

With this package version:

Package: console-setup
Version: 1.108ubuntu15.2

this bug is gone. There are no ordering cycles on my system. Thanks!

However, I still get error messages, but this is another bug...
