I know this has been asked multiple times before, but most of these threads don't have an answer. I tried user62664's solution here and ran
sudo update-grub successfully, but nothing changed. This happens whether I type
sudo reboot or
sudo shutdown -h now. Here is what it looks like when it hangs. There are no error messages, everything shows up with '[OK]', and then:
* Deconfiguring network interfaces... [OK] * Deactivating swap... [OK] * Unmounting local filesystems... [OK] * Will now restart [ 1306.738916] mei_me 0000:00:16.0: stop [ 1306.739745] reboot: Restarting system _
This seems like a very common problem, yet there are very few answers and they don't seem to help in my case. Does this mean there is no one solution? In which case, where should I check to check to find out the root cause?
