Updates don't normally affect such things, but well, stuff happens ;-)

Silly question first - you did reboot (logout after major kde package updates, reboot after kernel updates) didn't you?

Assuming that the answer is 'yes', check System Settings > Advanced tab > Session Manager - make sure that 'Offer Shutdown Options' is checked.

Thank you for your response!  I did reboot after the kernel updates and KDE updates.  I went in and checked the System Settings just now and confirmed that "Offer Shutdown Options" was checked; I unchecked it, re-checked it and hit "apply".  No change -- still missing the "Shutdown" and "Restart".  I then tried unchecking the "Offer Shutdown Options", clicked "apply" and exited the Session Manager.  Then I went back in, re-checked the "Offer Shutdown Options" and "apply" and rebooted for good measure.  Still no change.
