On my machine (Windows 10, x64, LyX 2.3.3, MikTeX installed as administrator in 
C:\Program Files) everything still works fine after updating the MikTeX 
packages. The location of the iftex package has been changed: it is now in 
tex\generic instead of tex\latex; the latex\iftex folder is now indeed empty, 
but the generic\iftex folder is full. I did not have to reconfigure LyX, 
iftex.sty is still found when included in the preamble.
Perhaps somehow the MikTeX file name database was not refreshed?
