The first problem I noticed on my site were broken hover states in the WordPress admin dashboard. Typically, when you hover the Posts or Pages or any side menu in the dashboard, a submenu appears to display the related options.
The cause turned out to be the removal of a script called jQuery migrate from the WordPress core — a necessary first step in the jQuery update process. The solution is to put the script back. Fortunately, the WP core team anticipated this would be an issue on some sites and kindly provided a free plugin to address the issue.
