    EDIT: New info as of 10:30pm, turns out that after reinstalling the missing apps, I didn't have to sign into any of them, and most of my settings were retained. Power Toggles and Discographer being the 2 exceptions so far.

    This is more of a heads up than anything else. I'm also going to preface this with, it's probably isolated as I haven't seen or heard it happening to anyone else. The short version is, I was up at 7:30 est and I had the purple 6.0 update notice in the taskbar. So figuring that I had some time while I was getting ready for work, I started it when I rolled out of bed. By the time I was showered and ready to go, it was at the "optimizing apps" phase. By the time I made it to the T, it was done and ready for my decryption code. When I opened to the home screens, I noticed that I had holes along my dock where my most used apps were.

    So my setup, unrooted T-Mobile LG G4 with a bunch of LG bloat/crapware deactivated or removed when possible. Action Launcher 3 is my replacement launcher, and FWIW I'm using the Smoke & Glass Icon pack. Since I'm a creature of habit, I set up my home screens in the most logical way for me to use. That means having my most used apps exactly where I would use them. This was done through years of habit, so much so that I don't even need to look anymore most of the time whenever I need something on my phone. The problem however is, I forgot what was missing after the update. I was so used to not looking that I didn't remember what was there. What is/was worse? There were a few other apps that were uninstalled as well. So here's the list of what I've had to reinstall after the update this morning:

    Chrome Remote Desktop
    Google Clock
    Fenix For Twitter
    Google Calendar
    Google Drive
    Google Photos
    Google Voice
    Google Messenger
    Android Pay
    Weather Underground
    Toy Fair International (This isn't a widely needed app, I use it for my trade)
    Google Dialer
    Discographer - For Discogs
    Speedway Fuel
    Chase Mobile
    ATorrent PRO
    Google Docs
    Google Sheets
    Google Slides
    Massachusetts Alerts
    Acorns Invest Spare Change
    Almond From Securifi
    Google Camera (Frankly, I was going to uninstall this anyway)
    Google Now Launcher
    AllCast Premium
    Power Toggles

    My prevailing point is, at the very least take a picture of your home screen. This is the first time something like this has ever happened to me when updating Android versions on a phone. However, like I also said, your mileage may vary. Good night, and good luck.
