I also have freezes on shutdown sometimes but not always. Did you try to use sysvinit instead of systemd (F5 in Grub)?
Thanks, that did it (at least for 3 consecutive shutdown tests). Tried first with F5 and, after that worked, installed "sysvinit-init" to make permanent (which uninstalls systemd-sysvinit, which causes the problem).
Thanks also to Kyrill ... yes, I did read the release notes before installing 12.1, but it wasn't immediately intuitive to me that there was a connection between 12.1 not shutting down completely, and systemd.
