* Change systemd service type to forking.
* Add server test startup to systemd sanity check.
* Reduce priority of root password prompt as the existing default of Unix
socket authentication when the root password is empty is preferred.
* Refactor database upgrades to use an internal "no-network" daemon instead
of using invoke-rc.d on the main service which could be locally disabled.
(Closes: #843959, LP: #1592669).

* Use maintainer script freeze mode instead of failing entirely when a
downgrade is detected.
