In the lowest directory level, how would a key file need to be named. Not the old convention of K[fqdn]+number+keyid.key or .private anymore?
No that hasn’t changed.
error reading private key file fqdn/ECDSAP384SHA384/41844
is short hand for
error reading private key file for ‘fqdn' with algorithm ECDSAP384SHA384 and key id 41844.
At this stage I suggest that you post actual config details and actual command lines rather than describing what you have done as the error will be in the details which we can’t see without them.

>> The numbers 41844 and 55203 are the very key IDs for which keys do exist in the traditional K... format /var/lib/bind. Of course, /var/lib/bind is also set as the key directory. The keys are certainly readable without permissions problems. The error does not go away even if you make them 777.
>> Please inform me what the issue is and what to do. Is there a change in the key naming scheme? How would the new names look like? I can certainly create one directory per fqdn under /var/lib/bind/ and then one subdirectory ECDSAP384SHA384 but what would be the (two?) files in 41844 and 55203? Is there a way to convert?
