Indeed there is no more /var/lock, snapper pre/post diff shows it was

filesystem should and still does create the link /var/lock to /run/lock,
and systemd does so, too.

maybe it should and maybe "for you" it still does, but some condition is
causing it to "sometimes" not create the link. I had it on two machines
in the last few days and created the link manually bypassing the problem,
ln -s ../run/lock /var/lock
