My Ubuntu doesn't always shutdown, while at other times it shutdowns instantly. This is the error I got when I shut it down from console, and after that it hangs and shutdown animation stops:

** (plymouthd :31584) : WARNING **: Command line 'dbus-launch --autolaunch=142004b7eab537d00e430e7f00000000b --binary-syntax --close-stderr' exited with non-zero exit 
status 1 : Autolaunch error : X11 initialization failed.\n
