Bug Description

I am not all that experienced with Linux/Ubuntu. I have no problem with attempting to assist, but I would need specifics as to what I would need to do next.

After a fresh install, the first thing I do is "sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade" followed by a reboot. On every reboot, a timer hangs up the shutdown process for 5 minutes while it's waiting for something along the lines of "Waiting for recording successful boot".

Today, I did a regular update/upgrade (as above) and started getting these errors (see attached).

Per Brian Murray's comment in a related (close) bug report, I'm attaching the output of 'strace plymouth --ping'. I used "script <filename>" to generate the output.

Please let me know if there is any other information I can provide (instructions may be needed).

Thank you!
