OK, that should rule out a lot of things...

This is just weird. This file is part of the lirc package:
$ dpkg -c lirc_0.9.4c-6_amd64.deb | grep lircd.conf.dist
-rw-r--r-- root/root [...] ./etc/lirc/lircd.conf.dist
Have you any idea why this file is missing by you? The same goes for the
$ dpkg -c lirc_0.9.4c-6_amd64.deb | grep devinput.lircd.conf
-rw-r--r-- root/root [...] ./etc/lirc/lircd.conf.d/devinput.lircd.conf

This shouldn't change on an update from -4. Yes, indeed, it's missing
is conffiles. Will fix, but it looks you have updated this so it's OK
(?) This is probably not the cause of your problem as long as the
/dev/input/myremote device exists and works OK.

This looks bad. lirc is not supposed to touch an existing lircd.conf on
an update, just to create it if it does not exist. Did you have a
/etc/lirc/lircd.conf before upgrading to -5?

This might be the culprit. Since you are using the devinput driver it
needs the devinput.lircd.conf.
If you have a /etc/lirc/lircd.conf.d/devinput.lircd.conf.dist you could
just copy it to /etc/lirc/lircd.conf.d/devinput.lircd. Otherwise, the
lirc-make-devinput script can create a new and possibly better file
using something like
# lirc-make-devinput > /etc/lirc/lircd.conf.d/devinput.lircd.conf
However, the core issue is why it's not there, see above.
