Sure you (or Lightroom) opened the right Catalog? Most probable cause is that Lightroom couldn't find you default (last opened) catalog and therefore created a new, empty one.

Yes, I opened the correct catalog. I even tried to restore the catalog with the latest backup. Even after the restore, this is still happening.

Make yourself knowledgeable about "Missing Photos" in the Lr-Classic Catalog-

MISSING FILES & FOLDERS (Lightroom Queen)

MISSING FILES AND FOLDERS-(Computer Darkroom)

And the methods to 'fix' are in the articles linked.

 

 

Regards. My System: Lr-Classic 12.1 Photoshop 24.0.1, ACR 15.1, Lightroom 6.1, Lr-iOS 8.0.8, Bridge 13.0.1, Windows-11.

It appears that after the update for some not all of my folders links have been broken. What is the best way to "Find Missing Folder..." in Lightroom? I have hundreds of folders that are missing. Is there a way to do it all at once vs individually?

By "finding" a top-most folder, all the sub-folders will be auto-fixed.

If LR is not showing the folder hierarchy, right-click "show parent folder" in the folders panel (repeat as needed).

if you mean there is a question mark icon on the folder, see: https://www.computer-darkroom.com/lr2_find_folder/find-folder.htm

 

Otherwise: "lost" meaning what specifically? Please explain in detail.
