Be sure your Ubuntu is updated/upgraded

Open a Terminal from the menu Applications → Accessories → Terminal and type:
(when the system ask you a password give your user password, you will not see nothing when you type it, then press enter)

sudo dpkg --configure -a
sudo apt-get -f install
sudo apt-get --fix-missing install
sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get autoremove

Then to shutdown from terminal type:

sudo shuwdown -h now

Then restart pc and retry...

Hope this helps

If this happens constantly, then try the above method.

My foolproof (almost) is

sudo poweroff

OR

sudo init 0

Both command will surely turn off your system. It has worked even in the most of the systems facing somewhat similar problems.

Can you help with this problem?
