systemd failure to boot

The latest rawhide updates switched a default init from upstart to
systemd and systemd-sysvinit. An attempt to boot a system after
those changes ended up with:
init: Set hostname to <localhost.localdomain>.
init: Failed to load configuration for distcache.service: No such file or directory
init: Failed to load configuration for default.target: No such file or directory
init: Failed to start default target: Unit default.target failed to load. See log for details.
systemd-cgroups used greatest stack depth: 3600 bytes left
and that is about it. Nothing further. I like particularly "See
log for details" advice as at this point my machine is dead as a
cucumber. Not that I am overly surprised.
Any sage advice how to make the above work? Booting with
'init=/sbin/upstart' still works fine so a recovery is not onerous.
No, I did not report that in bugzilla yet as there is not much above
"it does not work".
