Check the connections in any junction box you opened. Sometimes a wire will sneak out of a wire nut as you tighten it.

You wired something wrong. You need to give us more details of how you connected things together if you want more details of how to fix it.

I bet you knocked a neutral splice apart when you put up that new light. Take the new light down and make sure all the neutrals in that box are spliced together tightly.
