There were two conflicting requests [1] [2] to merge the two packages.

One of these requests was made from the maintainer of the
upower-nosystemd package [3] and he told us:
"I've agreed with the offer of upower-pm-utils maintainer to merge
these packages." [2]

Therefore the maintainer of upower-nosystemd asked us to delete the
package and merge it into upower-pm-utils (which has also a better name
and lacks any foolish nosytemd suffix).

The package systemd if part of the core packages in Arch Linux,
everything that is against the official init system is entirely not
supported by the distribution, including on what happens on the AUR.

Please don't ask us to solve issues between the maintainers of two
unsupported packages. This is the main reason why I ask the requesters
to settle the things with the packages maintainers and don't force us to
do a choice against a package or another.
