I'm running Kubuntu 18.04 on an Acer laptop in dual boot with Windows 10. /dev/sda6 is my root partition. Boot takes almost one minute and I don't know if it's normal. This is the output of systemd-analyze

Startup finished in 7.391s (kernel) + 45.645s (userspace) = 53.037s
graphical.target reached after 45.633s in userspace

And this is the output of systemd-analyze blame

I have already solved the problem of apt-daily.service as explained here, but there is still a service that takes long, dev-sda6.device. systemd-journal-flush.service also takes quite long.

Is there anything I can do or do I just have a bad hard drive? (the hard drive is new anyway)

Probably sudo journalctl --vacuum-time=5d changes something?
