SharePoint 2013 Strange Issue - Method Not Found

In this post I want to share about the an Issue which I faced today when I was demonstrating certain features in SharePoint 2013.

SharePoint 2013 was setup on Azure VM (A4 - 8 Cores with 14 GB) for the Development environment. Since it is for Dev, I went ahead with the Standalone installation. Successfully Installed and was using from many days with no issues. Today suddenly I was facing the following issue:

Method not found: 'Void Microsoft.SharePoint.WorkflowServices.IWorkflowService.Upgrade(System.Object, System.String, Microso

I am getting the same issue even while adding Add-PSSnapIn "Microsoft.SharePoint.Powershell" in SharePoint management Shall. 

Looked at the SP Logs & Event viewer where I can see many issues point to Cache Host is null or Cache Host is not present in the farm. Since its Standalone installation and configured on a workgroup machine I was ignoring this error and continued looking at the errors with no Luck.

The only change I can remember is that installing Worflow Manager 1.0 on the server. And showing SharePoint 2010 workflows in SharePoint Designer 2013.

Finally Looked at the Cumulative Updates on the server and decided to go with the SP1 installation. Unfortunately SP1 installation failed with no error message, so went ahead and restarted the machine and then re-initiated the installation which took good amount of time to complete.

I will suggest to look at the blog for speeding the SP1 installation as it consuming lot of time. After the installation I am able to run the PS Config Wizard successfully.

I hope this helps the SP Guys who are facing the similar issues.
