I don't really understand polkit, but you probably need it
installed so that systemd will let you have access to your
system.

You might try installing 
libpolkit-backend-1-0
libpolkit-agent-1-0
libpolkit-gobject-1-0

and seeing if that helps.

Otherwise, hopefully one of the systemd aficionados will chime
in.
