It says that your ldap database cannot be opened... There is a debconf
option that says:

"Do you want the database to be removed when slapd is purged?"

I wonder if you had that enabled before the upgrade.

During slapd upgrade, it asks to create a backup of /var/lib/slapd:

(c)rafaeldtinoco at focal:/var/lib/ldap$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure -p low slapd 
  Backing up /etc/ldap/slapd.d in /var/backups/slapd-2.4.49+dfsg-2ubuntu1.2... done.
  Moving old database directory to /var/backups:
  - directory unknown... done.
  Creating initial configuration... done.
  Creating LDAP directory... done.

Do you have anything under /var/backups/* named '*slapd*' ?
