stumbled on this bug. was looking into removing rsyslog.
before i hit this bug, i had already
mkdir -p /var/log/journal
and set Storage=persistent in "/etc/systemd/journald.conf"
everything is working great
interesting note on my system
apt-cache --installed rdepends rsyslog
apt-cache --installed --no-breaks rdepends rsyslog
i think that depends comes from the Breaks stanza in the deb file. i
think that is a bug in apt-cache, but I thought it was worth mentioning.

wrong rsyslog dependency in ubuntu-minimal
Status in ubuntu-meta package in Ubuntu:
According to dependencies of ubuntu-minimal rsyslog is considered to
be part of minimal supported system. With the switch to systemd it's
obsolete: the journald is shipped and running anyway and it already
provides secure logging by default. IT would be better to remove
rsyslog from ubuntu-minimal dependencies (and, ideally, from default
install as well) and enables "ForwardToSyslog=no" in
/etc/systemd/journald.conf - the users who are willing to install
advanced legacy logging will still be able to do that just fine, but
really does not belong to the bare-minimum system.
