i found out that installing unionfs-fuse works as a solution for this problem
(a retry with another flashdrive got the system to boot properly)
BUT fuse is not really a solution since overlayfs or aufs are faster..
the problem narrows down to one question
"why is overlayfs or aufs not available at boot time on the live
i tried with an additional kernel parameter UNIONFS=overlay and immediately drop to a busybox again..
both modules can be loaded when the live system is running so the
problem probably resides in the initramdisk?

using casper > 1.340 causes live system to drop to busybox (
Status in casper package in Ubuntu:
what should happen: the live system should boot properly
what happens: the live system drops into busybox
i created a systemimage of kubuntu 16.04 with "systemback"
the live system boots into busybox and displays the following message:
"(initramfs) /cow format specified as aufs and no support found"
i had this problem before on kubuntu 14.04.03
it seems that downgrading to casper 1.340 resolves this problem (but
downgrading on 16.04 is problematic / not possible)
the current installed version of casper is 1.376
