Some questions if you're using

Did you patch the guest's upstart as described in the wiki?
Do you have a /sbin/init process with pid 1 within your guest?
Did you restart the guest after the upgrade, and more important,
is the running init process provided by the old sysv-init or by upstart?

Note that upstart's /sbin/init creates a private dbus socket at
/com/ubuntu/upstart, which is used by the upstart tools if invoked as
root. If you want to query upstart about anything as a non-root user,
you need dbus-daemon to do access control.

By the way, the default cron daemon service is simply called "cron".
