The version indicates CentOS 6 / RHEL 6. 

I think you are on the money, the client is connecting with SMB1 and
the new logic on the DC is not to permit any SMB1 connections.  MS has
been locking this down for some time now.

Rolling back the updates probably didn't roll back the setting the
update applied.
