updating doesn't normally make files go away ... how (what) did you
update?  Do you have repositories other than the CentOS base ones

If you want to roll back, you can use the command:

rpm -qa --last > rpms.last

you can edit rpms.last and see which RPMS were installed (in reverse
date order) and reinstall the ones that you would like to reinstall.
