I have installed CURA 5.1.0 today and I experienced the same problem.
It worked with a model, but I got a "slicing error" after loading another STL file and then the slice button no longer appeared, even if I cleared all and reloaded the STL model.
Also solved by restarting CURA.
I restarted Cura and it now works!
