Plymouth is a dependency of mountall which is a dependency of upstart.
So upstart pulls in plymouth.
However, this seems like a harmless error, no?
Agreed, it is harmless ... once I researched what it was. But it's still something behaving wrong. Plymouth should not be a hard dependency. It should be possible to just leave it out. Then mountall, and anything else using it, should either try to use it in a silent way (like how rm behaves for a file that does not exist), or test for it and skip it if not present. Maybe it should funnel through a separate "boot status" package of some sort, which then spreads the states out to packages like plymouth or any others (maybe I want the boot status to be spewed out of a serial port and so I write a package or program to handle that), based on what exists or is registered or configured to be used.

All you really need is libplymouth2 and libplymouth-dev to rebuild it
Package requirements (ply-boot-client >= 0.8.0) were not met:
No package 'ply-boot-client' found
Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.
Alternatively, you may set the environment variables PLYMOUTH_CFLAGS
and PLYMOUTH_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.
Hello Sorry this is an old post but I run into this problem yesterday at a client's place after installing ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS server 64bits with RAID 1
After I finished the installation and handed over the credentials to their techincal team, they have misplaced it and attempted to reinstall the OS.This problem didn't show up the first time. but after erasing the content of the RAID devices and reisntalling the OS this issued popped up. I had to press on enter before the log in shows up. From reading google I needed to reinstall this plymouth-theme-ubuntu-text or rebuild? not very clear but below are the links talking about this.
