After upgrading systemd and systemd-libs from 249.4-2 to 249.5-1 I was shown 5 warnings on boot:

[FAILED] Falied to start Entropy Daemon based on the HAVEGE algorithm.
[FAILED] Failed to start First Boot Wizard.
[FAILED] Failed to start Rebuild Hardware Database.
[FAILED] Failed to start Repartition Root Disk.
[FAILED] Failed to start Create System Users.


The relevant entries on journalctl entries seem to be:

I have the same problem but a little different: I do not have haveged.service, systemd-binfmt fails, systemd-sysusers doesn't fail, the rest of them look basically the same.

Also I noticed the I have the five warnings repeated many times.

Is there an upstream bug report? Have you tried reverting [1]?
Edit:
Upstream issue [2].

I had not seen that issue at the time of reporting the bug. It seems the issue is with version 249.5 of systemd; I downgraded systemd, systemd-libs, systemd-sysvcompat and lib32-systemd to version 249.4-2 and that got rid of the issue.

[1] systemd-249.5-1.1.tar contains the systemd 249.5 packages with ed8fbbf1745c6a2dc0b8cd560ac8a3353f72e979 reverted, pkgrel is incremented to 1.1.
If you install those packages is the issue still present?

Installing the packages in the supplied archive resulted in no errors being shown on boot. Aditionally, systemd-sysusers runs successfully. It definitely seems that commit ed8fbbf1745c6a2dc0b8cd560ac8a3353f72e979 is the culprit.
Comment by Joplin Huge (Archislove) - Monday, 18 October 2021, 10:12 GMT
I can confirm that installing the four packages in the tar provided results in the warnings not being showed and systemd-binfmt, systemd-firstboot, systemd-hwdb-update, systemd-repart being dead(inactive) with "start condition failed", they're not shown anymore using systemctl.
