The reboot after the update takes forever. I'm waiting for half an hour. The computer needs about 3 seconds to  print one character on the screen. Does anyone know thats going on?

Edit: found the issue
Warning: an issue was discovered post-release with a small minority of systems running a full install with no serial console enabled, where the boot is very, very slow because of a serial console-related change. Disabling the serial ports in the BIOS will work around this issue should you encounter it.

We re-issued the 2.2.2 full update files today changing only this issue. First time we've ever changed an update file post-release, but given the circumstances, and the fact it doesn't matter whether already-upgraded systems get the change, and the process of releasing includes days of testing, that was the best option available. All systems upgraded from here out won't need to worry about that serial console/slow boot issue.

So there is a 2.2.2 and a 2.2.2.1/2.2.2a release?

Is there a reason the news banner hasnt been updated?

No, there is no 2.2.2.1/a/whatever.
Do NOT PM for help!
