Public bug reported:

systemd used to pre-depend on the libraries used by systemctl or something, but 
now systemctl uses libsystemd-shared, and there are no pre-depends for that, 
meaning that systemctl fails in maintainer scripts of other packages.

[Test case]
Grab the apt-clone file from comment #20 in bug 1766890, and upgrade it to 
bionic with apt dist-upgrade -o APT::Immediate-Configure=0. Make sure to not 
see error about missing libraries in systemctl.

[Regression potential]
Installation ordering changes. Might make things harder for apt to solve.
