As it turned out, I had not done a full upgrade after all... many packages
were still installed in the 15.12 version. But I saw no message of package
or library conflicts, so I was unaware of it.

Once I marked all available "kde apps" packages to be upgraded to their
16.04 version in my package manager, everything went back to normal: now
when I click a media item in the storage media popup, I get the usual
dropdown menu with possible actions. I didn't have that menu and was
wondering where it went. I actually didn't miss it and thought it was
removed, since it meant one less click to access the media.
