My first guess would be that the automatic Desktop Cleanup agent started (showed you a popup) and you clicked continue/ok without paying too much attention.
In that case it would have removed all items on your Desktop.
How to disable automatic Cleanup
Although if that is what happened, the desktop would still contain a folder with all of the icons that were removed from the desktop.
maybe the icons are merely hidden? I assume you only had shortcuts on your desktop.
Try to right-click the desktop and select > Arrange Icons By and see whether > Show Desktop Icons is checked. If it is not, you have found the culprit. Simply check it to show your icons again.
Please update us whether 'hidden desktop icons' was the cause or not. There may be other reasons, too.
