Before the upgrade you had a device allotted/named for that pen drive. 
When you upgraded the system added a second device for the pen drive 
after it noted the original. Same thing occurred to me over a cd drive, 
where it was /dev/cdrom and after /dev/cdrom1

For the life of me I do not recall what file I had to edit to rid the 
reference to /dev/cdrom1 to reset back to /dev/cdrom, but I found it via 
a bunch of googling. I'm guessing your problem might be similar. But, 
once I repaired it, I got my notifications back. Ric
