yesterday my system (Ubuntu 22:04) started hanging on shutdown. I don't recall doing anything unusual before this issue started happening (it started when my computer froze and I had to restart manually). The same issue has been observed elsewhere (Ubuntu 22.04, Ubuntu 18.04, debian more generally, Mint/Archlinux/You name it). Most posts don't have a solution (notably the one for Ubuntu 22.04 mentioned above). The other ones are super confusing, specially for a not very experienced user like me.
Below is the text in the screen I get when the shutdown is hanging:

What I gathered from the posts mentioned above is that this is either a kernel issue or something to do with the NVIDIA drivers. I am not a very experienced user so I am not sure what to do. I tried to shutdown the NVIDIA drivers on shutdown using the script I found here, but it didn't work (maybe I have to adapt the script, but I don't know how to do so). I haven't tried to update or downgrade my kernel since I am not sure what the consequences would be and because I am unsure to which version to downgrade/upgrade it to, but I am willing to try if you think that's the way to go.
