Hi all,

Recently, i upgraded Joomla to latest (3.8.6) and components disappeared from admin menu. So, now when i go to Components menu in admin, i have only these components:
  • Multilingual Association
  • Post installation messages
  • Tags
  • Weblinks
I don't have only one 3rd party component(JCE) and these Joomla components are missing :
  • Banners
  • Contacts
  • JCE
  • Joomla! Update
  • Messaging
  • News Feeds
  • Redirects
  • Search
  • Smart Search
There was one more error which i fixed. It was "The update table is not up to date. Please rebuild your update server table". I solved this issue using this fix:
https://github.com/joomla/joomla-cms/pull/16355
However, db query provided by user 'infograf768' was not working for me as id 802 was existing. So, i changed id in db query with 840.

I tried these steps to get missing components back:
1. System -> Clear expired cache
2. System -> Clear cache
3. Extensions -> Manage -> Database -> Fix
4. Extensions -> Manage -> Discover -> Discover
But nothing seems to work.

If i access 'index.php?option=com_joomlaupdate' i can see Joomla update component, but menu entry is still not there.

Please help.

Thanks for the link. This query worked perfectly:
UPDATE `#_menu` SET menutype = 'main' WHERE client_id = 1 and menutype = 'menu'

However i noticed that Web Links component was removed from J 3.4.x and later versions. So, i removed Weblinks package from Extensions -> Manage -> Manage .

This fixed all my issue.
Thanks again.
