Debian 10 has now fully switched to Systemd which means that the traditional commands to halt or reboot a system like 'shutdown -h now' or 'reboot' will not work anymore. First of all, run the command as root user. If you are not logged in as root, prepend the sudo command. Here are their systemd equivalents which need to be used on Debian 10:

Shutdown Debian 10

The command to shut down (power off) a Debian 10 system is:

systemctl poweroff

Reboot Debian 10

If you want to reboot your server or Desktop, use this command:

systemctl reboot
