Title:
  Yet another system hangs at shutdown (16.04)

Status in systemd package in Ubuntu:
  Incomplete

Bug description:
  Yet another of the annoying "system hangs at shutdown" bug reports. A
  fresh complete install of 16.04. Just like the others, gets down to:

  Reached target shutdown

  then stops. I've tried all the workarounds discussed, including
  swapoff -a, before shutdown attempt, etc. No joy. Have to hold power
  switch for hard shutdown very time.

  One observation of possible value. I also very recently installed
  16.04 server on two other identical boxes. Neither of them exhibit
  this problem and both shut down cleanly. Only this system, which is a
  16.04 desktop version -- again on an identical box -- is having this
  problem.

  Frankly, it's stuff like this that makes my efforts to move ordinary
  consumers over to Linux very difficult!
