A possible workaround that worked for me is to use the packages from openafs directly:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:openafs/stable
sudo apt-get update
as described in

This currently installs openafs version 1.6.21

The ppa:openafs/stable workaround restored AFS client service to my machine (which had been lost after I switched to the HWE kernel in early January 2018). Currently running openafs-client 1.6.22-3~ppa0~ubuntu16.04.1.
