Right-click on Desktop, select Leave>Shutdown the Computer - and the

Not having any hassle here. Of course you've checked to see what
packages were updated so maybe you'd have some clue as to what it could
have been?

FWIW, the last time (long time ago) I had a system that wouldn't shut
down it was due to a start-up script that hadn't completed. I didn't
notice it since I wasn't using the offending package.
