Photos on S7 were gone after Android 7.0 update

I received Android 7.0 update notification the other day and pushed the update this morning. When the update was finished, I found all of my photos in Gallery were missing as well as some video files. What is the wrong with the device?

Are you sure it was the update to 7 (Nougat) and not a security update?

On my S7 the Gallery app no longer opens but I can see my photos with the Photos app. I wonder what is going on here too.

I agree with @billg it was not a Nougat update. Check the Photos app for your images.

After clearing the Android System Cache the Gallery app opens.

Sorry for the wrong information. it seems a security update. There is no images in my Photos app.

Are your photos here:

Google Photos - All your photos organized and easy to find

If they are you can configure the Photos app so they also show up on you phone.

No. I only backed up contacts with Gmail.
