Got the prompt & updated late last week. Immediately noticed all those new lenses supported did not appear. In fact many old lens choices disappeared! Today LR would hang importing new files (Nikon D750 NEF files). Out of frustration/anger I removed LR, then reinstalled it. Import & lens corrections seems to work properly now. But I can't help wondering what else may be, or will, go wrong. Very disappointed.

That sounds very odd. It sounds like the upgrade didn't install properly, in which case, the uninstall and reinstall should have fixed it.

The other possibility is that you had JPEG, PSD or TIFF files selected when your lens choices disappeared. That may not be the case, but it's frequently the cause of people thinking their lens profiles have disappeared.
