After installing Ubuntu GNOME shutdown process fails

Bug Description

I installed in a VM (in the latest version of Virtual Box), however once I pressed the reboot button presented to me after the installation had completed successfully it then hanged on this screen (the screen was completely frozen on this, no graphical change at all) and refused to shutdown forcing me after at least 5 minutes had gone by to manually shutdown it down. Forcefully shutting it down like this doesn't seem to have made in boot or run incorrectly, though when I shut it down or try and restart I just get it on a black screen refusing to do it by itself and I am forced to shut it down forcefully every time.

I have attached a screenshot of the screen I mean.
