This should work.
Which one did you use? You need to use the old one in ~/.kde/share/apps/
kwalletd, not the new one in ~/.config/kwalletd.

You can retry the migration:
Set alreadyMigrated to false again:
%> cat .config/kwalletrc
Restart kwalletd. One way is to log out and log in. There is another way which
works during a session, but I am not sure how it worked. Maybe you can just
quit kwalletd5 process and start it again.
