Does it really say 'scrips' rather than 'scripts'?

Googling on that error message (with the presumed typo corrected) leads
me to http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=133578 as a first
hit.

'dlocate scripts/local-block' finds three packages on my system:
cryptsetup, lvm2, and mdadm. Results on your system may differ. I would
suggest running that command on your system and investigating the
resulting list of packages.

That should be 'journalctl'.

What init system are you running?

Usually, this can be determined by 'dlocate /sbin/init', but I can't
guarantee that that will hold for all systems.
