    effect. I shut down and went to bed. I expect it will do the same

    Am I alone in this?
I don't know if you are alone.  I just know that I'm not in the same
situation.  Just shutdown my recently updated F11 system without
problem.  I don't run fail2ban....so can't tell you if that is your culprit.


   I updated the second computer and it displays the same problem. The
   system stops at  "Stopping fail2ban" and I have no control after
   that. About all it does it acknowledge "Control-Alt-Delete pressed!"
   I can bring up another terminal and it asks me to loin but does not
   accept keystrokes. I will have to remove fail2ban in order to
   restore normal operation ...

   Oh-ho, it finally appears to have recovered and is now presenting me
   with a login screen. I logged in and entered "poweroff" and it is
   stuck at "stopping fail2ban" again.

   It stayed there six minutes and then shut down normally from that point.

   Bob
