If you are using the legacy configuration backend via ipsec.conf and
starter daemon, then the name of the systemd unit has changed with the
5.8.0 release  (from strongswan to strongswan-starter, which is also
the name of its package). The strongswan unit now controls the
charon-systemd daemon, which is configured via swanctl.conf and
installed with a separate package of the same name on Debian/Ubuntu.
