Just got the upgrade. But I lost some files in the upgrade and had to 
restore them from backup.

In /etc/nagios the files checkcommands.cfg and misccommands.cfg are 
deleted and replaced by an incompatible file called command-plugins.cfg 
which is not even in the proper format for Nagios:

# Note: Use the convertcfg program in the contrib directory of the Nagios
#   distribution to convert this file into a object file format.

for misccommands.cfg there also was a *.rpmsave version but the other one 
was just gone.

You may want to look into this issue and see why avalid and required 
config file was destroyed.

There is also a bug in 1 of the nagios-plugins for which the following 
tiny diff file is the answer:
