Was there a conffile prompt during the upgrade? It looks like the issue
is that the file that Plinth modifies is a conffile owned by radicale
package. So if there are updates to the packaged file, you get a prompt
asking which one to keep. If you pick "no", then you will keep your
current settings, but might miss important updates (maybe not in this
particular case, but in general).

I opened a bug report
(https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=848064) to suggest a
fix for this issue.

For now, as a workaround, you could pick "yes" to get the upgraded file,
then run this command to re-configure with our default settings:
$ sudo /usr/share/plinth/actions/radicale setup
