Can't start or stop services

For the past few days I cannot start or stop a service.  It will sit thinking for several minutes.  When trying to start a service it will think and never start the service.  The log will say
REST cache cleared on all machines. 

When trying to stop a service I get this error
"ERROR: Could not undeploy services from one or more machines. 'null'."

the only thing that has changed in the last few days are some patches installed on our windows 2008 server machine.  Any ideas where to start?
