It sounds like you only backed up Data and Boot not the system partition. Every once in a while system is not checked on the screen right before you swipe to make the backup. As a matter of fact it happened to me last night after i wiped my phone i always have a main backup and then a current one just before i don't something to my phone. In the future just make sure all 3 (Boot, System and Data) are checked before you swipe to make the backup.
When you go restore that backup, before you swipe it will show you what is being restored. If System is not in the list, then you didn't get the system backed up.
