Bug Description

System: Xubuntu 14.04 LTS

Package info:
PackageName Current UpgradeTo
libpam-systemd 204-5ubuntu20 204-5ubuntu20.2

Error shown:
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

How to reproduce:
1. Run the following commands to prepare the image customization environment:
sudo apt-get install squashfs-tools genisoimage
mkdir ~/livecdtmp
cp ~/Desktop/xubuntu-14.04-desktop-i386.iso ~/livecdtmp
cd ~/livecdtmp
mkdir mnt
sudo mount -o loop xubuntu-14.04-desktop-i386.iso mnt
mkdir extract-cd
sudo rsync --exclude=/casper/filesystem.squashfs -a mnt/ extract-cd
sudo unsquashfs mnt/casper/filesystem.squashfs
sudo mv squashfs-root edit
sudo cp /etc/resolv.conf edit/etc/
sudo cp /etc/hosts edit/etc/
sudo mount --bind /dev/ edit/dev
sudo chroot edit
mount -t proc none /proc
mount -t sysfs none /sys
mount -t devpts none /dev/pts
export HOME=/root
export LC_ALL=C
dbus-uuidgen > /var/lib/dbus/machine-id
dpkg-divert --local --rename --add /sbin/initctl
ln -s /bin/true /sbin/initctl

2. Enable the partner source by adding the following line to source.list:
deb trusty partner
deb-src trusty partner
deb trusty main
deb-src trusty main

3. apt-get update && apt-get upgrade to get the error mentioned.

Troubleshooting steps I have tried:
1. clean the apt cache folder and download the updates again, still failed.
2. empty the folder for customization environment(livecdtmp in this example), and do the steps again, tried at least 4 times, still failed.
3. tried to completely remove and reinstall whoopsie package, but failed to remove and reinstall
