Magento Developer Tab Missing After Upgrade

SSH into your server / instance and run the following command from the root Magento 2 directory:

Now, clear the cache by running the following command:

Once you run these commands, the Magento Developer menu should now be visible. Go to Stores >> Configuration >> Advanced and you should see your tab there.
