I bought a Dell XPS 15 one month ago in order to install Linux on it in dual boot. I installed dual boot Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS with Windows 10. But The problem is Ubuntu hangs on shutdown/restart. I faced the same problem with Linux Mint, Linux Lite, Lubuntu and Ubuntu-Gnome.

I tried these commands but nothing changed:

sudo gedit /etc/default/grub



GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi=force"

Run this:

sudo apt-get update # Fetches the list of available updates
sudo apt-get upgrade # Strictly upgrades the current packages
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade # Installs updates (new ones)
  • Any reason for using an almost 4 years old Ubuntu release? If not you'd be much better with 16.04.3 LTS or the current, non-LTS, 17.10. In any case the XPS line also comes with Nvidia graphics for which Nvidia proprietary drivers are required for performance. – user692175 Jan 8 '18 at 3:30
