Configuring systemd-journal-upload with URL and certificates (in /etc/systemd/journal-upload.conf) is not enough. Starting the service results in:

Nov 23 21:15:02 goweb1 systemd-journal-upload[2765]: Cannot create parent directory of state file /var/lib/systemd/journal-upload/state: Permission denied

Additional info:
* package version(s)
systemd: 227-1
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:

* Configure /etc/systemd/journal-upload.conf
* systemctl start systemd-journal-upload
This task depends upon

A fix would be to run:

* mkdir /var/lib/systemd/journal-upload
* chown systemd-journal-upload /var/lib/systemd/journal-upload

Preferably at package install time.
