sudo reboot halts....for ages...what now?

Tue Feb 05, 2019 8:10 pm

Hi

I need to do a restart so I do "sudo reboot" on my Pi - but it just sits there saying:

[ OK ] Removed slice User Slice of pi
[ OK ] Stopping Permit User Sessions
[ OK ] Stopped triggerhappy global hotkey daemon
[ OK ] Stopped Login Service
[ OK ] Started Plymouth Reboot Screen
[ OK ] Stopped Permit User Sessions
[ OK ] Stopped Configure Bluetooth Modems connected by UART
[ OK ] Stopped MariaDB database server

It sits like that for ages then eventually reboots...

Any ideas what the problem is and how to fix it?

the command
sudo reboot
will wait 60 seconds to give you time to change your mind

if you do not want to wait then

Code: Select all

sudo reboot now
will end anything running and then reboot.

sudo reboot has always been instant for me.

The shutdown command is the one that has the delay.

I suspect this is a different issue.

After an upgrade it now tells me what the "problem" is on restart:

[***] A stop job is running for Fail2Ban Service (2min 5s / 3min)

Perhaps related to : https://github.com/fail2ban/fail2ban/issues/1588

I have my pi exposed to the internet....it gets a LOT of attempts...
