After Magento 1.9 upgrade community extensions disappeared from Magento Connect

I upgraded Magento CE from 1.8.1.0 to 1.9.0.1. I followed the knowledge base article on how to upgrade Magento and believe I did everything correct. However, FishPig WordPress and other free community extensions no longer show up in the Magento Connect list like it used to although they still shows up in the backoffice under configuration and also in the top menu.

What could cause an extension to disappear from Magento Connect after an upgrade but still be installed and working?  I have already verified that download/cache.cfg is writable.

Apparently 2nd line from the end invites you to install them back.

I reinstalled the extensions into the fresh install of Magento 1.9 as far as I know how .  Here's what I did... what did I miss?

Copy original app/code/community/* to new Magento installation
Copy original app/code/local/* to new Magento installation
Copy original app/etc/local.xml to new Magento installation
Went to my base url to allow upgrade scripts to run (didn't see anything visual but I think that's expected behavior)Cleared all Magento cache
Cleared all Magento cache

They say to "check" extensions.
I assume print checklist and reinstall them is what they mean...

No one answered the question so finally just manually removed files for the offending extensions and then installed the extensions again via the Connect Manager.
