Thank you for the reply.
My idea is to update, then shutdown. There is probably lots of technical hurdles to this, I wouldn't be much help there, but its the only way i see coming out the other side updated and actually shut down.

This is a good report, but the issue you raise (LUKS passphrase needed
for the reboot in offline updates) is a big and difficult problem that,
frankly, I haven't heard any great ideas for solving. The updates are a
applied in a clean, minimal environment to reduce the possibility of
errors, and rebooting into that - and for that matter, out of it again
into the updated system when complete - is the easiest and safest way
to get there. We've talked about it at some length with no good
solution so far. So, don't be disappointed if your report doesn't get
attention right away - it's a known problem, but we don't know what to
do about it.
