Been running Ubuntu 17.10 for a while. All was fine till the other day when I did a sudo apt update and upgrade.

Now it takes 9.5 minutes for it to shut down..

I press esc on shut down and it shows:

A stop job is running for WPA supplicant
A stop job is running for Raise network interfaces 
A stop job is running for Network Manager 

These keep repeating until it finally shuts down 9.5 minutes or more later.

Any help would be much appreciated
I have tried numerous things...

  • Same problem running shutdown -h now from a command line. It prints A stop job is running for Network Manager WPA supplicant and it doesn't stop, at least not in the first 5 minutes. It seems related to this bug: bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1724317 – ROMANIA_engineer Nov 4 '17 at 18:36
