In my case I was able to succesfully upgrade by systemctl cancel-ing the  
stuck password prompt job from an alternate console. This started the  
upgrade, which completed without issues.

My bug might be the same one here, at least insofar as the LUKS password  
prompting itself goes. However after kicking the upgrade, I ended up with a  
working system, unlike this bug. The difference might be that in my case I  
had regular, individual disk partitions; LVM was never in the picture.
