I saw this. But it comes from the UprightFont option. So I'm asking
again: why don't you drop it? Fontspec obviously don't expect that
the value of this key has an extension.

Perhaps. \setmainfont[UprightFont=arial.ttf]{arial.ttf} worked in
TL15 but not in TL16. But as I don't see the reason for this setting
I don't know if it a bug or if simply some unsupported side-effect
no longer works. But you should better ask this in the issue tracker
of fontspec: https://github.com/wspr/fontspec/issues
