First what "smart search package" are you referring to? Joomla has search capability built in. If you need to reinstall the search, you'd reinstall Joomla. Second, did you check all your extensions work with Joomla 4? (Did Joomla 3.10 run the compatibility checker?)

I think the best thing you could do, is restore your site to 3.10 from your backup, and attempt the migration again.

Please use the forum post assistant, as advised in the red box "forum rules" at top of page.(https://forumpostassistant.github.io/docs/)

The old com_search from Joomla 3 has been replaced in Joomla 4 by com_finder.
This isn't an entirely new extension because com_finder was available in Joomla 3: it was called "Smart Search".
The single search facility in Joomla 4 is in effect the old Smart Search from Joomla 3.

If the files are present, do a Extension->Install->Discover and install what are found.
