Cannot Access Exchange 2016 Exchange Powershell after CU Update. Users Outlook cannot connect, OWA and ECP cannot connect either.

I issued the command Get-ExchangeServer | Format-List Name, Edition, AdminDisplayVersion to verify the current Exchange CU version which is CU3 15.1.544.27 and wanted to update to CU10.

I use the Admin Power Shell to do the update, however, when I ran the following command, d:>setup /m:upgrade /IAcceptExchangeServerLicenseTerms

For some reason, it was indicating that i was upgrading CU 3 and not CU 10, so i let it install successfully and thats where the problems started when I tried to connect to the Exchange Admin Powershell.

Users cannot access mailboxes, OWA doesn't work and ECP doesnt work. I tried to access the Exchange Admin Powershell with another account and same issues.
