"has the new update anything to do with this loss?"

Most likely is that the upgrade used an old, (or empty), catalog to upgrade. (It has been known to do that.)

But your photos should not have gone, you just need to find the correct catalog that references all your photos.

WIth Finder, search your system drives (both internal and external) for catalog files that have the file-type of .LRCAT.  [Double-click] on the .LRCAT file to open it.

Let us know what you find.

Screen-clips of your LrC screen showing the folder panel, and clips from Finder showing your photos in the external hard-drive.

 

Regards. My System: Lightroom-Classic 13.3.1 Photoshop 25.9, ACR 16.3.1, Lightroom 7.3, Lr-iOS 9.0.1, Bridge 14.1.0, Windows-11.
