I'm running Debian Jessie and recently my shutdown has been taking a long time. When I
sudo shutdown -h now
I'm sent to a blank screen except for a blinking cursor which sits for ~1 minute. It then flashes something like
"Cannot finalize remaining filesystems and devices, giving up"
and then shuts off. I get this behavior even when powering down from a terminal with no X server running.
I suspect the problem has to do with my full disk encryption, possibly in conjunction with my software RAID configuration. I have three RAID0 arrays (for /boot, /, and swap) and two RAID1 arrays (for an unmounted /private, and /home). All the RAID devices are encrypted except for the /boot one, and I additionally have an encrypted external /data drive.
Shutdown used to be near-instant until an update about a week ago.
Is this a known issue and are there any fixes? I don't even know how to troubleshoot this issue.
