My AFP server stopped working, so I decided to reboot it:

  pi@raspberry-pi-server:~ $ sudo reboot
  Failed to start reboot.target: Activation of  
  org.freedesktop.systemd1 timed out
  Failed to open initctl FIFO: No such device or address
  Failed to talk to init daemon.

Any idea what's up?

I ran apt-get upgrade, as this seems to be some sort of kernel issue.

Now we are stuck on:

  Unpacking raspberrypi-bootloader (1.20170427-1) over (1.20170405-1)  
  Setting up raspberrypi-bootloader (1.20170427-1) ...
  Removing 'diversion of /boot/start.elf to      
  /usr/share/rpikernelhack/start.elf by rpikernelhack'

and have been for quite some time...

That's a symptom of systemd dying. I've had that happen to me before,
and I've needed to resort to "magic sysrequests" to reboot.


There are ways for a root user to activate the magic sysrequests via
the filesystem, if you can't type them with a SysRq key, eg over a
network connection.
