The system settings
The Applications Menu and other wingpanel indicators
It might be because you changed your Plank Theme.

I had asked this question as I was exploring making a switch from Windows 10 to elementary OS as my primary desktop (dual boot). I have been installing lots of ppas, and just to make sure it wasn't related to one of these,
I did a clean install, with all the software I previously installed except for the firejail ppa + firejail, and things have been ...

I finally got it working. I'll put it here in case someone faces the same issue.
First, I followed @Sysadmin suggestion mentioned in the comments above.
