that means it could not find the domain password in secrets.tdb.  When
you upgraded, did you either copy the secrets.tdb to the new prefix, or
use the same prefix?

This doesn't explain the re-join issues, unless you are mixing up a
'net' binary from one release (and prefix) with smbd/winbindd from the
other however.
