System Reboot Stalls After Update

When I reboot the system after installing updates, the system initiates the reboot process and then just stays there for a long time.

Is this when the updates happen and I need to be patient or is this a programming bug or update bug?

Does it eventually boot all the way?

Same thing happening each time?

Guess its possible to turn the splash off when booting Qubes too, so that its easier to see whats going on…

How would I turn off the splash? see these messages about being unable to reboot at the end when I am requesting the entire system restart.
