OM5577: "NfcService Init Failed" after updating Raspberry Pi 3

I recently installed the OM5577 Raspberry Pi Linux demo image (REV 1.2) onto an SD card for my Raspberry Pi 3. After starting up my Raspberry Pi 3, I confirmed that the OM5577 device was working by using the nfcDemoApp. I then decided to check for updates for my Raspberry Pi using apt-get update and then apt-get upgrade. The following changes were made:



Right after doing the updates, I confirmed that the OM5577 device was still working using the nfcDemoApp; however, after restarting my Raspberry Pi, I get the following error message when running the nfcDemoApp:


NfcService Init Failed


I'm guessing that when installing the updates for the Raspberry Pi, a package that the nfcDemoApp uses was either modified or removed. Does anyone know how I can fix this issue and get the nfcDemoApp working again? I know that reinstalling the demo image will make it work, but I would rather be able to keep my Pi updated and still be able to use the OM5577 device.


Thank you,
