I just would like to add that I had a dangling symlink in /etc/apache2/conf-
enabled/nagios3.conf after the upgrade, keeping apache2 from starting.
Should I file a bug against the jessie package of nagios3?

The good news is that I was indeed able to easily migrate from nagios3 from 
jessie to icinga1.x from stretch by copying the contents of /etc/nagios3 and 
/etc/nagios3/conf.d that I had modified over to /etc/icinga and  /etc/icinga/
objects, plus some renaming of files named *_nagios2.cfg to *_icinga.cfg.
