Xubuntu – Can’t Shutdown After Updating to 16.04


I updated from Xubuntu 16.04 beta-2 to 16.04 today. And now I can't shutdown my laptop but I am able to restart. When I try it the GUI way it just logging out.
When I tried

sudo shutdown -h now

I got the following error:

Failed to start poweroff.target: Transaction is destructive.
See system logs and 'systemctl status poweroff.target' for details.

Output of /var/log/messages:

tail /var/log/messages
tail: cannot open '/var/log/messages' for reading: No such file or directory

Output of systemctl status poweroff.target
