I'm not sure if digitalocean images are customized, in a way that prevent upgrades. Can you try creating system systemd-timesync user, and re-attempting the upgrade?

$ sudo adduser --quiet --system --group --no-create-home --home /run/systemd \
    --gecos "systemd Time Synchronization" systemd-timesync
