This is a really old CPU you’ve got there, it’s a 4th generation i5, about 7/8 years of age and only has two (2) cores. So it might be a little slow.

Nevertheless, to see what’s the holdup, run and post the output(s) of:

sudo top

This will provide real-time stats of your resource usage.

systemd-analyze critical-chain

and

systemd-analyze blame

Edit:

Please wrap any pasted terminal output in three (3) backtics (```) before and after the pasted text. Like this::

```
text
```

This will just ensure that it’s properly formatted and will be displayed like this:

Urna phasellus tincidunt elementum amet portaest sem adipiscing
ipsum metus rutrum nec
congue vivamus dolor sollicitudin
sit quisque felis aliquam
facilisis lacus vel orci erat.

instead of like this:

Urna phasellus tincidunt elementum amet portaest sem adipiscing
ipsum metus rutrum nec
congue vivamus dolor sollicitudin
sit quisque felis aliquam
facilisis lacus vel orci erat.

Making it much easier to read.
