After running system updates, messaging icon no longer displays number of unread texts

Model Z981, Android Version 6.0.1

Hmm.. Open the text messaging app -> Settings. Check if the option to show number of unread texts is there. Otherwise, they may have replaced the text messaging app with a different one. Anyway, you can get a text messaging app from Google Play store if you want that feature.
