is a panel running?

  pgrep -a panel

I suspect Lubuntu does use the openbox window manager and perhaps (not
necessarily) the openbox autostart file. If so, take a look at the
autostart file.

  cat ~/.config/openbox/autostart

If a panel should run, but it doesn't run or it runs, but should be
invisible, are there any related messages in ~/.xsession-errors ?

  less ~/.xsession-errors

Assuming the panel should be lxpanel, take a look at the subdirectories
and files in the parent directory ~/.config/lxpanel/ , e.g.

  less ~/.config/lxpanel/default/panels/*
                         or any other profile name


  ls -hAl ~/.config/lxpanel/

What happens if you launch the panel from command line?

  killall -9 lxpanel ; sleep 2 ; lxpanel

  killall -9 lxpanel ; sleep 2 ; lxpanel --profile name_of_a_profile
