This must be a systemd bug..
As it turns out, the version of the package in unstable actaully does ship with a bad multiline variable definition in /etc/default/prometheus-node-exporter. (I got confused because I quickly installed the package on another system, to check whether the problem was one of my own creation, and did not realise that I had installed the older version that only added a single argument to the ARGS variable). The fix is to add trailing backslashes to indicate that lines should be continued. This is documented in systemd.exec(5): EnvironmentFile= Similar to Environment= but reads the environment variables from a text file. The text file should contain new-line-separated variable assignments. Empty lines, lines without an "=" separator, or lines starting with ; or # will be ignored, which may be used for commenting. A line ending with a backslash will be concatenated with the following one, allowing multiline variable definitions. The parser strips leading and trailing whitespace from the values of assignments, unless you use double quotes ("). -- Sam Morris <https://robots.org.uk/> PGP: rsa4096/CAAA AA1A CA69 A83A 892B 1855 D20B 4202 5CDA 27B9
