Sharepoint List Settings Error code

I would like to know if someone can help me figure out what this message means.

Here is a little information about the server setup, we have two virtual servers one is our sharepoint server (SPWEB) and the other is our SQL server (SPSQL).  Both servers are running Windows Server 2008 R2.

This is the error message that the sharepoint administrator gets when he tries to open a SP list withing the website.

This problem started to happen after our Windows administrator pushed a MS patch update to all the windows server.  The Microsoft update (patch) was applied a few hours before this error started to happen.

About 30 minutes later the SP administrator informed me that he could not reach the SP website.  I confirmed this and it appears that the Microsoft patch may have caused more harm then good.

After, several hours of doing an emergency restore of both servers SPWEB and SPSQL we finally have both servers back online.

So, I have two questions, first it is logical to think that what caused the problem was the patch update, do you agree?

If so then how do I determine which MS update caused the problem?

Besides doing a DBCC CHECKDB on the databases which I already have done, is there a MS SP application that the SP administrator (SP Doctor?) can use to check if the SP application is working normally?

Looking at the error I see reference to blocking which may indicate there was some sort of database lock on the DB table(s) at the time. Maybe the patch was updating SQL records when you tried to visit the list?
Do you know what the patch was and which product it was associated with?
May have been coincidence and could have been a timer job that caused blocking. You could check the SQL logs for clues

I checked the SQL logs and I did not see anything that could have caused this problem.
