Could not discover the state of the system. An unexpected exception was found: <exception details>.

We found that this issue was related to the server missing MS Security Advisory (ME2749655) missing and needed to be installed. Once we installed the security advisory and the Roles/Features were once again accessible.
This issue occurs because of corruption with the Component Based Servicing subsystem within the Windows operating system. This corruption is related to incorrect permissions that are set by users or by the administrator. See ME971509 for resolution.
In my case, the error was caused by a role becoming corrupt and thus, ServerManager was not able to read the data. The clustering feature was removed but the server crashed during the removal leaving it in a half installed state. ServerManager could not read the information and so gave the error. Running "ServerManagerCmd -query" should give a "Error: Failed to initialize in the same situation" message. The solution is to manually fix the role or feature that is causing an issue.
