On that specific point, and in the hope that it might help others, my
old notes of upgrading from Ubuntu 14.04 (to 15.04) state that I had
to do:

chmod 755 /var/lib/spamassassin

to get it working again after upgrade. An alternative (I wrote at the
time) might be to make user amavis a member of debian-spamd group.
(I had no further problems with SA/amavis when upgrading from 15.04 to 16.04.)
