Steps to reproduce the issue
Upgraded manually to Joomla 3.7
Discovered upgrades and updated database
Cleared cache and made all Joomla components active
Was replicated on three different joomla upgrade websites
Admin menu for components should not have changed
Components menu made certain items like contacts and joomla upgrade disappear. Inconsistent menu items disappeared across the three websites – If I manually go to the url of the missing components, they still work, but they’re just gone in the admin menu.
