As a reminder, starting with Debian 8.0 Jessie, the good old sysVinit event manager has been replaced with systemd, an alternative service developed by Red Hat.

If you already have Debian 8.0 Jessie installed on your system, you can perform a regular system upgrade, in order to get Debian 8.1:

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install dist-upgrade
