I hope I have the attributions correct. Is your server mounting other filesystems via NFS? This is a classic symptom of an NFS server failing to respond in my experience.

Is selinux enabled?  I thought I saw some other messages
about the recent update causing selinux to prevent vnc logins.

It turned out that this set of VNC problems was unrelated to selinux, but was instead due to a recent security fix which broke VNC authentication. In any event, that doesn't affect ssh, which the original poster also says doesn't work.
