    Tough luck, your apps were installed on your SD card through WP 8.1 with a unique ID (not exactly sure what the real technical term is).
    Hence, your phone won't recognize the apps because it now has a "new ID", I believe this is the case even if you revert back to 8.1

    The apps I had installed on my L640's SD card using 8.1(+Denim) weren't accessible immediately after upgrading to 10512 (via 10166) yesterday, but after a reboot or two they worked fine.

    Pull the battery for 5 to 10 secs it should work. It's a bug with windows 10. I just try to install to my phone memory until this gets fixed in a future build
