After replacing all outlets, bathroom lights and outlets not work

I replaced 20 switches in the house. Afterwards I checked. Except for the switch controlling the ceiling fan with 3 lamps, all others work.

I then uninstalled all the old outlets. I replaced old outlets in the mater bedroom first with new ones with TN feature. I tested, but the new outlets are not working. Moreover, now the lights and outlets in the master and hallway bathrooms are not working any more. I did not replace the timer switches and GFCI outlets there.

What happened? What should I do?

Any input or suggestion is GREATLY appreciated.

Not enough information. For the bathrooms I suspect you have caused a ground fault. Did you try to reset the GFCI?
