Missing Nintendo 64 after installing Electron

(Apologies in advance if this is in this is in the wrong place)
In 2021 I bought a SuperPi Case with Recalbox (ver. 6.1.1), loaded with thousands of games. Had no problems with most of it, but was frustrated with the N64. Many games didn't work properly, and there was no way to really use a USB N64 controller. I had spent quite a lot of time and energy combing through forum posts and looking at youtube videos, but I could never solve the issue of the controller.
I thought that if I upgraded to the newest version, maybe it would work more smoothly, so I followed the instructions on the download page. Now, all my games are gone, and the N64 console is missing from the options. Is there a way I can get it back? I'm not as concerned about getting back the games I want.

The Update does not delete any games.
But it is not possible to upgrade directly from version 6.1.1 to version 8.0, it was necessary to reinstall the system.
- Did you do it yourself?
- Have you backed up games before and copied them to version 8.0?
- Did you put the games in the right format in the right folder?
Do you use an RPi3 then? Rpi3 is not strong enough to emulate the N64 (nor dreamast and PSP), if you overclock it you will be able to run some games better, but even an Rpi4 "suffers" to emulate the N64 (but many users claim that overclocked the Rpi4 runs well on N64 and Dreamcast - I don't have Rpi4 so I can't say for myself).
