Your words, "boot", "wait", and "30 seconds" there triggered this
response. Did you do any upgrades in last couple days? This may not
affect others but on Stretch, I received the following
"apt-listchanges" auto-generated message that I knew was one of those
"keeper" kind of things:
++++ BEGIN apt-listchanges: News MESSAGE ++++
initramfs-tools (0.129) unstable; urgency=medium
* Some systems that do not support suspend-to-disk (hibernation) will
require a configuration change to explicitly disable this.
From version 0.128, the boot code waits for a suspend/resume device
to appear, rather than checking just once. If the configured or
automatically selected resume device is not available at boot time,
this results in a roughly 30 second delay.
You should set the RESUME variable in
/etc/initramfs-tools/initramfs.conf to one of:
- auto - select the resume device automatically
- none - disable use of a resume device
- UUID=<uuid> - use a specific resume device (by UUID)
- /dev/<name> - use a specific resume device (by kernel name)

That "apt-listchanges" package comes in handy for putting that type of
information right in your face during upgrades.
Hope that helps someone somewhere.... some day... :)
