I had a simmilar issue. I got it solved by changing the pathes in the digikam 
sqlite database. In the albumroots table of this database the path limiters 
(the "/" sign) in the identifier filed was wrong (something like %aa where aa 
is a number). Replacing the wrong one by a regular slash and digikam 5 can 
access all albums again.
