That's what I was thinking. If it were me I'd spend the extra $10 or so and buy an additional filter. Put the first one on and run the engine for a couple minutes, and then remove to see if it got oil or not.
With the old filter being a Fram, it's no telling what happened.
You would know if the oil pump went out, trust me. That would have been an awful racket
