I've upgraded my instance from SQL2012 SP1 CU10 to SQL 2012 SP2 CU4, I've noticed that the Query Statistics Collection set of the Data Collection is not working anymore.
When I stop and restart the collection set, I get the following errors:

There was an error with ODS - Get snapshot of dm_exec_requests.Outputs[OLE DB Source Output].Columns[command] on ODS - Get snapshot of dm_exec_requests.Outputs[OLE DB Source Output]. The column status returned was: "Text was truncated or one or more characters had no match in the target code page.".

The "ODS - Get snapshot of dm_exec_requests.Outputs[OLE DB Source Output].Columns[command]" failed because truncation occurred, and the truncation row disposition on "ODS - Get snapshot of dm_exec_requests.Outputs[OLE DB Source Output].Columns[command]" specifies failure on truncation. A truncation error occurred on the specified object of the specified component.

SSIS Error Code DTS_E_PRIMEOUTPUTFAILED.  The PrimeOutput method on ODS - Get snapshot of dm_exec_requests returned error code 0xC020902A.  The component returned a failure code when the pipeline engine called PrimeOutput(). The meaning of the failure code is defined by the component, but the error is fatal and the pipeline stopped executing.  There may be error messages posted before this with more information about the failure.

I've also removed the complete data collection with sp_syscollector_cleanup_collector and recreated it again but still the same issue.

Any idea how I can fix this?

If you are using SQL 2012, Can you please install recent CU and check it out?
Cumulative update package 9 for SQL Server 2012 SP2

Hello Pieter,
Can you please check if you still see this issue after upgrading to SQL 2012 SP3?

We've been able to resolve the issue by taking the SSIS packages off of an instance that wasn't updated yet and reloading them after the update. Comparing the XML data of the old/new packages it appears that the package built for 2008/2008 R2 ended up in the 2012 update. In 2008/2008 R2 the command column is only 16 characters. Also if you look at the XML the connection was dropped from SQLCLI11 to SQLCLI10.

I have noticed that the packages QueryActivityCollect.dtsx and QueryActivityUpload.dtsx have been changed, which is causing th issue.
In SP2, the collection and upload was done by a fixed query but in CU4 i've noticed that the Collect and uploads are changed into the usage of stored procedures. For example: EXEC [msdb].[dbo].[sp_syscollector_snapshot_dm_exec_requests]
