Emulationstation won't autostart after core update [SOLVED]

I am running since a while a Retropie image 4.4. Today I went through an update done with the Update function of retropie-setup (core, kernel and package).
The script ran to completion but after the restart and after the retropie splash screen I get login prompt instead of emulationstation. But if I login in and launch manually emulationstation it start with no issue.
I have trouble to understand how emulationstation is launched at the startup so I do not know what and where check
It seems that /opt/retropie/configs/all/autostart.sh is not called, because also a NFS share that is mounted in this script is not mounted at the startup. This script seems to be called by a script in /etc/profile.d where the script inside are called by /etc/profile:
# launch our autostart apps (if we are on the correct tty) if [ "`tty`" = "/dev/tty1" ] && [ "$USER" = "pi" ]; then bash "/opt/retropie/configs/all/autostart.sh" fi
Honestly I don't understand what is going wrong here...
Seems you stumbled upon the auto-login not working after the update - https://retropie.org.uk/docs/FAQ/#why-emulationstation-doesnt-start-automatically-after-an-update.
