I revoke that last statement... after a reboot, the problem is still there.
I open the storage media popup, click on a storage media item, the dropdown
menu opens (which, as mentioned, did not happen before I upgraded
everything), and I select dolphin. Again, I get permission denied. Then I
open dolphin manually and click on the media item, and then I get as many
additional dolphin windows as I tried to open the media via the popup menu.

Unmounting via the plasma popup works, though.

There are two states for hard disks: new and full.
