This is a known issue with caching of CSS in your browser. To resolve it, press Ctrl+F5 to reload.

There is an open ticket on it, [PHPBB3-15058] At new feature release phpBB's CSS files should carry information for cache busting

Try to disable the extensions or/and upload a fresh prosilver style packet.

Ok, that restored it to the vanilla phpBB colours/styles - so I guess the upgrade is more of a re-install since it deletes all of your css and style edits ... and deletes the side bar.

Thanks - it looks like I'll have to re-code all of the colour changes manually again then as the 'merge files' option completely screwed up the css files.

Could this, e.g. the forum being unreadable, happen to any users of my forum? Should I inform the accordingly?

Yes

Why should MaGie70 inform users about buksida's problems upgrading?

Then what do you think MaGie70's question is?
You cannot generalize and say that ever single board owner is going to have problems upgrading. There is no sense telling your users there will be problems if you do not know there will be problems.

Most of the users has cache problems after the update, so it is normal and useful to warn them.

so far, I have not seen a single instance where the normal users have seen these problems after the owner updates. so far , it has only been the board owner/updater that has the css cache problem.
