systemd display-manager.service error kvm vm, Debian Jessie os

If you are receiving this error in dmesg upon boot:

Cannot add dependency job for unit display-manager.service, ignoring: Unit display-manager.service failed to load: No such file or directory.

Execute these commands via cli to fix.

1) systemctl get default (look at result)
2) If the result is graphical display, then continue with 3
3) systemctl set-default multi-user.targetsys
4) systemctl get default (recheck result) should be multi-user.target

reboot your vm and you should no longer see the error in dmesg.
