If it still does not appear you might want to try some general trouble-shooting.
Restoring Preferences after making sure all customized presets like Actions, Patterns, Brushes etc. have been saved might be a good starting point:

Are any of your layer types locked out? I've had a few clients in the past who accidentally clicked one of these making that file confusing to use. Is this happening regardless of any new files you create or is it one particular file.
Also worth mentioning, if something got corrupted with the old version. Did you use the Adobe App Manager to remove the old application version and install the new version cleanly? Sometimes legacy prefs and other elements screw with the update. I've had to use the Adobe App Manager or a program for mac called AppZapper to make sure all resources/prefs etc are removed properly.
Thank you! That totally worked.
