Can't fully start Ubuntu v16.04 on OpenVZ
I tried the official template as well as a few 3rd party templates I found here and there. They all do exactly the same thing. Only a few things start. Systemctl doesn't work but systemd daemon is running. That and bash are pretty much the only things running. Dbus is not running so I tried starting that and enabling it to start on boot but that doesn't fix it. There must be some other dependencies that are not starting to get basic systemctl running. I can run systemctl commands but it just gives an error once dbus is running. "Failed to get properties. Launch helper exited with unknown return code 1"
I can start individual services like ssh and networking using "service ssh start" etc. So I think it's probably just a matter of figuring out what basic services I need to start to get to the point where I can enable things to start automatically on boot.
Nothing wrong with my OpenVZ server. It runs everything and using a recent kernel and recent vzctl. So if I am having this problem a lot of other people must be too.
I also tried installing Ubuntu 15 and upgrading from there but it dies about half way through the upgrade.
