Bug Description

Bug report 'refresh':

This bug is affecting Lubuntu Xenial final, and I was adviced to create a new bug report. The symptoms are the same or similar as in

Bug #966480 The prompt asking for media removal is not shown at the end of the installation.

It affects the live session, when booted from a USB drive, when cloned (with mkusb, usb-creator-gtk, gnome-disks, dd, Win32 Disk Imager).

Workaround: remove the boot option 'splash', but if you know about it, you can press Enter to continue (rebooting or shutting down) with seeing the prompt.

This might also be a symptom of the same problem in the program code as reported in

Bug #1359689: cryptsetup password prompt not shown and/or
Bug #1370707: Plymouth does not display the graphical boot splash

This bug affects both Lubuntu Xenial i386 and amd64.

This bug does not appear exactly in the same way in VirtualBox:

Default, with the boot option 'splash', it does not work to press Enter to continue to shutdown or reboot (different from my real computer).

But the workaround, to remove the boot option 'splash', works. The prompt is displayed, and it works to press Enter to continue to shutdown or reboot.

This problem is also affecting Lubuntu Xenial final in UEFI mode, which boots from grub, when booting from a cloned USB drive (as described earlier). But it does not affect grub-n-iso boot systems. In that case there is no prompting, it just reboots or shuts down.
