I have a fresh ubuntu installation.
everytime I try to restart or shutdown, I got the following enter image description here

And that's it. I am forcing shut down everytime.

Any idea what can I do to fix it? or to gather more information to find out why this is happening.

Thank you

EDIT some other information that might be helpful:
- I am dual booting with windows 10
- ubuntu is installed on an SSD partition that I shrinked through windows disk management
- there are other issues with the installation as well, like battery not charging even when plugged in but it is working fine in windows.

  • This article/forum post might help... At least it seems to be somewhat related. Googling "clearing orphaned inode" may yield some useful information. – 0-60FPS Apr 16 '17 at 6:16
  • @0-60FPS, at least now I know what this output is. it is fsck. but my issue is not the same – Moha the almighty camel Apr 16 '17 at 6:21

I had the same problem a few days ago...
This bug is common and there are a lot of solutions for it...
For me the solution was to update the kernel...
It was a kernel bug...Hope you can solve your problem too it was driving me crazy.
UPD: here this post helped me to update the kernel: https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1872537
The one I use is 4.9.22-040922-generic Though as I said there are a lot of reasons why this happens this might not help you but you will never know if you don't try
