Yes exactly. I had same experience and after looking in  ~/.xsession-errors
it was doing update (internal). I think perhaps a message should be
displayed, so that use does not get nervous that nothing is happening.

After waiting for a while, in my case, it completed the update and continued
normally, but it took perhaps 2-3 minutes.
