Apple Warns That Restoring From Backup Can Cause Apple Music Bug on New iPads and iPhone 13 Models
Customers who purchase an iPhone 13 model, an iPad 9, or an iPad mini 6 and restore their new device from a backup may run into a bug that affects Apple Music, Apple said in a new support document published today.
New iPhone and iPad owners may not be able to access the Apple Music catalog and settings or use Sync Library after restoring from a backup.
To fix this issue, Apple says that the devices must be updated, which can be done by going to Settings > General > Software Update. iPhone 13 owners who have already received their devices have confirmed that there is a day one iOS 15 security update that needs to be installed. It's worth noting, though, that the update text does not specifically mention the Apple Music bug.
This bug only affects the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro Max, sixth-generation iPad mini, and ninth-generation iPad.

I'm wondering if there was a bug in Apple Music or whatever iTunes you want to call it, previously.
I have a total mess of my music.
About the only thing that works nicely is if I call out for a song and artist or song and album, using Siri.
Lots of headaches with Apple "iTunes" legacy stuff.
IN A NUTSHELL:
Apple needs to go through the use cases of it's customers and see what a real human might be doing to arrange his or her music. It might take you 30 seconds or less to find a problem with the interface. Fix that please. It's a mess.
You say there are "bugs" coming if I update from backup? Well there was bugs before, so why would I care? Seriously.
Restored from back-up
Let everything load and update, but didn’t touch Apple Music
Used Software Update to update to 15.0
And that’s it. Everything seems to be working normally, including Apple Music.
