Nope, still don’t see the error. I attached the entire output of piuparts.

To be clear, the package on behalf of which d-s-h creates directories
should rather ship those directories itself is what you’re saying? That
will require some additional logic in dh_systemd_enable to figure those
out at package build time.

…unless I also ship /etc/systemd/system/…, right?
