Then stick to bullseye for now. It’s not a “supported” scenario in
bookworm and there’s very likely to be breakage already, at latest
in bookworm-backports there *will* be.

I know I do. I converted all my sid systems to bullseye before the
beginning of the bullseye cycle.

To the OP: ideally, you first do usrmerge (if you’re using the pak‐
kage) since that’s what They test, then get rid of systemd, then do
the upgrade. I’d not entangle the UsrMove switch with the upgrade,
if at all possible.
