How are you installing it? Just tested with lxd, it works fine.

My GUESS is that you're probably using lxc (not lxd), with debian template,
and do some local changes? I suggest you try these one by one, to determine
where your problem is:

(1) install lxd, and run a debian container

lxc launch images:debian/jessie/amd64 jessie
lxc exec jessie bash

(2) install privileged (i.e. as root) debian lxc container, using download

(3) repeat whatever you tested and didn't work.

My guess is (1) and (2) will also work on your system. If you still have
problems with (3), then more details would be useful:
- is it privileged or unprivileged?
- did you try download template
- what errors do you find (e.g. does "systemctl" on the container simply
hang? does "systemctl status" show anything unusual?)
