New Update:   As this issue re-occurred, we applied to fix as per Randy Ridgely in this thread: Microsoft Security Updates cause BizTalk Admin Console errors: An internal failure occurred for unknown reasons (WinMgmt) 


This issue is supposedly resolved in August 2018 .NET Framework Security and Quality Rollup

Below are the KB numbers for the monthly rollups and security only patches that have impacted or could impact various version of BizTalk Admin Console on different operating systems as per the Technet thread, Sandro’s blog, Stack Overflow and Twitter.
