I upgraded yesterday to 11.2.3a. When I go to a device and look at the Patches tab, patches are listed with the devices status and I can deploy patches. However, if I go to the main Patch Management home or the Subscription Download on the Configuration home, I get a java.lang.NullPointException. Any ideas would be much appreciated.

Here is the full error details:
