Summary0005650: Reboot or shutdown will eventually cause an infinite loop of errors
DescriptionRebooting or shutting down can cause an infinite loop of a SQUASHFS error. So far, this has only been tested on VMWare Fusion. It will only affect shutdown or reboot, so far not both, and only in live boot. The Kali gnome ISOs cause these issues, and though reboot and shutdown will sometimes slow a bit on other ISOs it will not loop errors ever. This occurs with 2gb of ram, 16gb of ram, a fresh ISO download and fresh vm created with it, and different computers.
Steps To ReproduceDownload 2019.3 kali-amd64 ISO, create a new VM with 2 cpus and 2 gb of ram, load into live boot and reboot. Repeat the loading into live boot and rebooting at most 5 times and it'll begin looping, sometimes it can happen on the 1st try others on the 3rd. If reboot does not trigger it, try shutdown.

Sophie can reproduce it with VirtualBox almost every time, but i don't reproduce it with kvm. It would be interesting to know the result on real hardware.

Can't reproduce either in vmware or real machine (I have samsung ssd and ssd to usb-c adapter, so I can both use it as external physical drive for vmware or boot from it)))

@Balling did you test with a daily image?
(that's what this report is about, as 2019.3 release images are not public yet)

It will still occur on VMWare Fusion, however on physical hardware it is not being replicated.

Due to the age of the OS (Kali Moto [v1], Kali Safi [v2], Kali Rolling <= 2019.2), these legacy versions are no longer supported.
