Those are 2 seperate error messages. The first one means that something
tried to start a systemd service, probably a package installation. For
example, if you install ssh during an fai install, it will try to start
the ssh service and fail. But that is not a problem. The policy-rc.d
message refers to a script located at /usr/sbin/policy-rc.d that you can
use to prevent services from starting. I find it a pita and just delete it.
