You didn't say if they are gone from the disk or just the catalog. Use Finder or File Explorer outside of LrC to see if the folders still exist on the hard drive. 

if they exist on the drive but not in LrC, you've most likely opened the wrong catalog or something similar.

 

Another thought, were those folders on the same drive as the folders that still exist? If not, is the drive they were on still part of the system?

 

Though possible, I doubt the update deleted the folders. It is more likely something else changed when you did the update

No, but probably the "wrong" catalog file was opened. Try File->Open Recent.

Use your operating system's search feature to search all hard disks for files whose name ends with .LRCAT

 

Then double-click on each one until you find the one that shows the folders that appeared to be missing.

If this was me, I would:

1. Find out where your backup catalogs are located.

2. Pick the most recent one.

3. Roll back 11.3.1 to 11.2. You can do that in the Adobe Creative Cloud app

4. Open the most recent backup catalog in 11.2.
