In the failing box, try

systemctl start nfs.target
systemctl start nfs-server.service

If after that mounts work, check all your boxes and re-do something like

systemctl enable nfs.tartget
systemctl enable nfs-server.service

Problem: after conversion from sysvinit to systemd, nfs is not enabled even
if it was before. I suppose this will be fixed.

And don't worry about nfs-common.service. It is dead and removed, but some
other services reference it so it appears in listings. I suppose its references
will be completely removed in next packages... but it doesn't hurt
(apart your eyes).
