Mate programs won't launch, just hang, no message

OS: Ubuntu MATE 16.04 LTS

I updated a couple days ago. Ever since then I’m having issues launching applications. Anything I launch will just hang before a timeout occurs.

For example, I try to launch the File Manager and it will not launch. Same with Mate-Terminal. I figure something must be wrong, so I next try a terminal that I already have open. I type caja and it just hangs and a timeout occurs. It doesn’t print out any error. Same thing occurs with mate-terminal. No error occurs, doesn’t launch.

It works fine after a reboot, for a short while, but my environment will get like this. Not sure how to proceed.
