Thanks for this. It has also been reported in Debian.  The issue is that the
version libelogind0 is lagging behind libsystemd0. However, there isn't a more
recent version of elogind available at the moment. So the
libelogind0/libsystemd0 compatibility is broken for packages that use the latest
libsystemd0 symbols.

Until there is a new version of elogind upstream, I am afraid I have no ideas of
how to fix this.
