Absolutely love the user name.

Do you have an external device attached like a USB flash drive or external hard drive? You could try removing it having shut down.

You will see a very similar - almost identical - problem to your own in this thread:

https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...0t-4175633655/

A web search yields many results, for instance

https://askubuntu.com/questions/7921...-finish/792157

Yes, these two links above refer to Ubuntu, but seeing as Zorin is based on Ubuntu it should help.
