Where are they stored? Internal drive? External drive? Are they still there? Which operating system are you using?

Not sure how a Lr update would change it. Can you make sure that you are opening the correct catalog that you are intended, not some backup/test catalog that you are testing?

Inside Lr, do the missing file entries are still present the catalog, but just shows a missing (!) warning icon? Try https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom/help/locate-missing-photos.html to reconnect the actual file locations. I suspect that you might have opened a catalog that you have not intended.
