I had a long drawn out battle to fix my broken User Profile Service app after applying the Feb 2012 CU.  The original motivation to install this CU was to fix the issue in the June 2011 CU which broken the picture upload functionality.

Now that UPS is up and running and synchronizing properly I found a new issue - when I click on Choose Picture button I get ubiquitous Error popup w/ An unexpected error has occurred and the correlation ID.

After turning on verbose logging for all events, I triggered this error again and filtered based on this ID but not sure what to make of it...

Thanks ACH1LLES, your tip pointed me in the right direction.

1. In Central Admin > Application Management > Manage Web Applications, I deleted the MySites app but not its database (note its name before you delete it.)

2. Recreated MySites, good guide - http://sharepointgeorge.com/2010/configuring-my-site-sharepoint-2010/

Note: for my situation I did not deploy a new Site Colleciton as MySites is not used in my organization but at least do all the other configuration steps.

3. One thing the guide doesn't mention is to note your Preferred Search Center URL which in my case is http://intranet/search/pages.
Go to Application Management > Manage Service Applications > User Profile Service > Setup My Sites
Enter this URL under "Preferred Search Center".

4. Run IISRESET /noforce

5. Go back to User Profile Service in step 3, and click "Start Profile Synchronization" and then a full sync.

6. At this point you should be able to click on Choose Picture without getting that cryptic error.
