both systemd and udev need to be upgraded in lockstep:

a/ udev has Breaks/Replaces systemd (<< 224-2)

b/ systemd has a Breaks/Replaces udev (<< 228-5)

Forcing the upgrade of only one of the two will fail.


a/ for moving the .link and *.network files from systemd to udev

b/ later we decided to move the *.network files back from udev to systemd

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
