Hi All,

Since I may not make meeting (niece visiting and Thurs. is her last day) 
I'm putting my issue out for comment and hopefully answers. As many of 
you know I used to updgrade instead of clean installs and did that since 
Ubuntu 6.04. I had also added many apps from third parties and also 
modified many, many conf files to keep things working. I had a meltdown 
and lost much of my data but following a partial recovery, thanks to a 
certain group member, I installed a clean version of 18.04 onto a new 
1TB SSD. I have ot tinkered at all with 3rd party software nor modified 
any conf files or been a bad boy in any way!

My issue ids that I cannot shut down my box in anyway other than a hard 
shutdown. I also cannot restart it. I have tried the GUI option as well 
as switching to text mode and using "sudo shutdown now" or "sudo restart 
now". In those cases I get the splash screen with the "traveling lights" 
and Unutu but it hangs there. The traveling dots hang on the first dot 
of the splash screen and nothing happens. I had hoped that text mode 
would give give me an indication of the issues but I can't stay in that 
mode for some reason.

Thanks for any help.
