Hey guys! I have a problem with my laptop... I shuted down my laptop and when I reopened it, it took 6-8 minutes to boot. My laptop runs Ubuntu 18.04 and Windows 10(dual boot). Windows doesn't have any problem with startup time. I tried to check the disk, which is a ssd 256GB, but obviously ubuntu cannot unmount the filesystem partition to check and repair it... Any ideas. I am bored to do a new clean installation, which probably its the best solution!

- There is a kernel bug with /dev/urandom that makes reading from it blocking... until that is fixed with the next kernel update you should be able to speed it up a bit by wiggling the mouse (or a finger on the touchpad) or hitting the shift or ctrl key during boot to make the system generate entropy a bit faster.28w
- If Ubuntu is your goto OS, I'd run Spinrite from grc.com on the drive. It's $80 but will pay for itself in potential data losses and boot times.28w
- I almost wish there were some way to publicize this. I experienced the same thing after a recent update and have been frantic trying to figure out what was going on. Hitting the shift key cuts my reboot from 5.5 minutes to 34 seconds and knowing that a fix will show up at some point is very reassuring thanks so much for taking the time to share the info. How widespread is it, or who is affected? Is there a link to the bug?28w
- this is bugs.launchpad.net - Bug #1780062 “Cloud-init causes potentially huge boot delays wit...” : Bugs : linux package : Ubuntu (ignore the cloud-init in the titel, it has proven to be more widespread since it was originally filed)28w
- Thank you all guys!28w
- Special you!!! It worked! I am looking forward to the next kernel update!28w
- Use redobackup (http://redobackup.org): boot from USB and check disc integrity...28w
- i've had those problems since ubuntu 14.04 and dual boot. windows sleeps fine. linux just reboots after awakening.28w
