This worked for me:

Can you show full logs (journalctl) after having seen the "Failed to start udev Kernal Manager" message?

We need to know why it fails to be able to fix anything... also you should try to complete your upgrade with "dpkg --configure -a" and retry again "apt full-upgrade".

Can you verify that "udev" and "systemd" have the same version?

dpkg -l udev systemd

Otherwise ensure that you upgraded both. It might be that you are affected by https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=853078

This has likely been fixed in the mean time.
