After upgrade postfix report "error looking up passwd info for ..." + "user lookup error" and fails to deliver mail through mailbox_transport. My configuration uses LDAP amd dbmail, so there is no local user which systemd may know. Probably it returns another error code which treated by postfix as fatal.

Reverting "passwd", "group", "shadow" to "files" fixes the problem.

I think it should print huge notice at least about such dramatic change in post_upgrade().

PS. Actualy I am not sure if it was systemd, but usualy it causes most of problems :)
This task depends upon
