The hard drive's probably almost full.

It doesn't want you to turn off until the Updates have installed themselves, then it will turn itself off.

Leave it on and go to bed. - see what it is doing in the morning.

If its taking ages to install updates, then that might suggest something like 'checking' is in progress. What anti-wares are in constant use on the machine?.
