I've seen threads like this posted before, but haven't been able to find anything that has resulted in a fix for me. Essentially, when I choose "Restart" or "Shutdown" from the Apple menu, the process begins as normal, but gets stuck on a black screen with just a mouse cursor. Right before the screen goes black, 3 lines of text appear, as depicted in the attached photo.

At this point, I'm stuck. Previously I was just doing a hard-shutdown by holding down the power button, or hitting the restart button the case, but when I realized I could ssh into my computer still and do "sudo reboot now" or "sudo shutdown -h now" which works, I've been doing that.

Any help with figuring out what this could be would be appreciated. I can provide whatever config files are necessary. Thanks all, happy hacking!
