She may be unable to copy over the 66 precious templates that she can't
find nor reproduce (from backups).

How and if she upgraded from Wheezy to Stretch without passing by an
intermediary Jessie stage is a matter for conjecture. As the results
aren't perhaps guaranteed if she bypassed Jessie in the upgrade process
from Wheezy maybe all bets are off. However 17 out of the 83 templates
remain extant, so a piece of the puzzle seems to missing (maybe it's the
one inside my brain!).
