Silverblue cannot upgrade to F31 due to upower.service, systemd-logind.service

Hi, I tried to upgrade my Silverblue F30 to F31:

sudo ostree remote gpg-import fedora -k /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-31-primary

removing rpm-fusion localpackages:

rpm-ostree remove rpmfusion-free-release-30-1.noarch rpmfusion-nonfree-release-30-1.noarch

finally:

rpm-ostree rebase fedora:fedora/31/x86_64/silverblue

But after the restart I get stuck with “Failed to start Daemon for power management.” and “Failed to start Login Service”, the computer then ignores any input but ctrl-alt-delete.
This is what I can read in the journal after rebooting into previous deployment:

$ sudo journalctl -b -1 --no-pager -u upower.service

Failed to set up special execution directory in /var/lib: Permission denied
