It is hard to troubleshoot if you don't provide all the steps that you performed before migrating.

E.g. also describe your old situation/setup (starting point when everything was OK), all actions/commands you executed etc.   

If you upload, nothing is deleted locally unless you manually did so. Always keep backups!

Regarding the presets, I also had a bunch of presets show up with names like that the other day... I just deleted them since I have all my presets in a folder so I can easily re-upload.

Greetings Ali,

Is there any chance that, post update, you signed in with a different Adobe ID than you'd been using before? That is normally the case when all the images and presets mysteriously disappear.
