I just upgraded to Fedora 26. Everything is working fine, except for a strange umounting problem at shutdown: /home and Temporary directory partitions are not being umounted. This is the boot message:

....
Jul 12 21:55:46 Orion systemd: Unmounting /home...
Jul 12 21:55:46 Orion systemd: tmp.mount: Mount process exited, code=exited status=32

Jul 12 21:55:46 Orion systemd: Stopped target Swap.
....

I did a lsof /home before shutdown, and I get some pulseaudio activity and a autologin script in \home. Neither ever gave any problem before. Temp stuff is irrelevant, but I am afraid that \home may be unproperly umounted and eventually corrupted.

Clues?

I found that uninstalling plymouth (for fedora: dnf remove plymouth* && dracut --force) fixed a similar issue for me. I had the same error but also noticed that the first (visible) message was a failed to start plymouth. After that the system had trouble umounting tmp and home but also shutting down gdm and other services. It would take about 5 minutes to shutdown or reboot.

Not sure why plymouth wouldn't start as I found no trace of this error in my logs.
