Another side note to what I have above. Text frames collected with the content collector seem to be working fine from the parent link to all the child links. All the styles are mapped between the parent and child documents.
Do you link when you place the content to the original image or do you link to the instance in the INDD file where you collect from?
If you link to the image (it is done when link is deselected in the collector convoyer) you can relink or replace the image directly.
If you link to the instance (it is done when link is selected in the convoyer) you have to change the image there and then update the link in the new document.
I am linking to the instance in the INDD. That is where it must link to for our purposes. If the image in the parent photo frame is changed, the child photo frame should also update to that image when it is updated. Only thing is it is not updating when the parent image is changed out.

Since you mentioned that it worked before the update and also when you go into the link options of the child link that is not working properly and turn on and off one of the link options and close the link options dialog box.
