I have updated all my posts with more relevant information and removed all the internal links to unrelated pages.

That's content quality + internal backlinks, more inclined to believe is the latter.

work on the internal backlinks.

have no orphaned pages.

and keep them clusterized.

lots of people say was about internal backlinks, not a content qualiry per se.

Now, keep updating your website with informative content, interlink the pages, add images, videos where possible, wait for the next update.

In my expeience, such a drop could happen only for serious rules violation. If this is the case, correct everything and wait, a lot.

Wait for the next core update.

Don't do anything. Let it sit for a couple for a couple of months.

I have seen big firms crash massively due to this update.

I feel like the obvious answer is create helpful content.

I gave up on trying to understand what Google wants. Same thing happened to me, hundreds of pages and products were not indexed anymore. I did everything possible with no change. I left the site alone and 2 months later everything was indexed and back to normal. 4 days later they took it all away again. This is with me doing nothing at all.

Sounds like you have a lot of work, are those unrelated pages still on your website? that could be a factor, as well good mentioned that it could take months as they re-evaluate the site and see where your website fits in.

I had a client site also hit and we also added a lot of relevant content aggressively.
