system account problem fixed

here is the right .sysusers content

#Type   Name                    ID                      GECOS   Home directory  Shell
u       systemd-journal-netlog  -:systemd-journal       -       /               /bin/nologin

the current user adding mechanism leads to startup issues for systemd-netlogd as the user has to "own" the group in order to have the permission to read from /var/log/journal. I as of now cannot tell how to solve this using the .sysusers file, but the non-automated workaround is like this:

userdel systemd-journal-netlog
useradd -r -d / -s /usr/sbin/nologin -g systemd-journal systemd-journal-netlog

As pointed out here:
