The type initializer has failed ! Oh Noes!

So I was trying to connect to my VM, and I got a very strange error.

The full error message says

Cannot connect to
The type initializer for "Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Common.ConnectionInfoHelper" threw an exception. (Microsoft.SqlServer.ConnectionInfo)
AccessToken (Microsoft.SqlServer.ConnectionInfo)

As I was researching why my copy of Management Studio was unable to connect, I realized I was still on a previous version, 13.0.15700.28, and that the most current version was 13.0.16000.28.

One upgrade later to the latest release of Management Studio 2016, and I'm back in business, and able to connect successfully.
