Re: Quit button login screen not working

Can you post back the output of....

cat /etc/lightdm/slick-greeter.conf

&

gsettings list-recursively x.dm.slick-greeter

This is just to check if there is something funky in your settings that could be causing the issue.

Re: systemd-manager add to repos

Have either of you tried Stacer? > https://github.com/oguzhaninan/Stacer

Looks like it can do the same sort of thing as systemd-manager along with it's other functions (system monitor, pretty safe system cleaner).

there is a few things that you can try out:
Cinnamon xlet updates are not via the repos, the relevant settings modules (Themes, Applets, Desklets, Extensions) poll the Cinnamon Spices website directly.

OP - try disabling IPv6 in your network settings to see if that makes any difference.
