 Ooops, looks like this is due to #6269.

 In short, on the move to F9, xapian has been updated to a version where
 non-backward-compatible changes have been introduced. F9-based builds can
 read old indexes, but F7-based builds cannot read the new ones.

 What should we do here? Build the old xapian packages for F9? Or just
 release note that after updating to a F9-based build you will loose the
 journal contents if you go back to F7?

 Please leave this ticket to discuss this particular issue in F9 joyrides,
 and discuss the generic issue of backwards compatibility in #6269.
