Thanks for the heads-up, I've been holding off on that upgrade...

What is the corresponding KF5 applications version (in the Help/About menu if kwallet-manager puts up one, or else in Konsole)?

Good luck with that, I hope you didn't do this upgrade without keeping a bootable backup if indeed you need to be able to continue working with the computer!
Your old wallet should be in a file like ~/.kde/share/apps/kwallet/kdewallet.kwl (and matching .salt file); I have no idea if it can be read by the current kwalletd.
Something I'd try is to install apt and aptitude, do `apt depends kwallet-manager` to figure out what kwallet-manager depends on, and then reinstall the kwallet packages among that list using `aptitude reinstall`.
