Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: digikam

If you open Digikam for the first time with a digikam3.db file in the
root of the photos directory, it attempts to import the data into the
new digikam4.db file format.

Unfortunately, there is a bug in the import.  The end effect is that
NONE of the existing photos are displayed.

This is a known issue, with a patch released.
See the upstream bug (and patch) here:

I think this is a fairly serious bug.  When a user starts this version
of Digikam for the first time, it will appear that all of their photos
have been lost!
