Adobe removed the ability to re-link multiple things at once in Illustrator.

I have Illustrator template files I set up where PDFs are precisely placed and are swapped out week to week. I would just have to move where the original .PDF file was linked from and once Adobe Illustrator couldn't find it's original location, it would ask me if I would like to "Replace" "Ignore" or "Ignore All" with a checkbox to "Apply to All" (photo attached from another thread)

For some reason they've removed the "Apply to All" function in the update 4 days ago and now each instance has to be manually relinked 1-by-1.

What is the reasoning behind this?

 

Is there a workaround already implemented that I'm unaware of?

You have to install the beta version from the Beta tab in the Creative Cloud app.

Unfortunately I was already running the latest Illustrator update, which includes the Beta features like Generative Recolor (beta) etc. The "Apply to All" / "Replace All" function is still missing.

Commenting to express that the "Apply to All" option for updating linked files is a critical feature that needs to be preserved in final releases - requesting that Adobe ensures this will be kept beyond the Beta. Thank you.
