 I've deleted that file already.
 But I had an older snapshot so I've tried to reproduce the issue again.
 And I got it clearly reproduceable:

 0) I have clean install from 0.4 archboot iso (IIRC) in vmware with
 pacman 3.1.3 and no openssh, only some packages were upgraded, so
 package database is not broken
 1) pacman -S openssh --noconfirm --debug > install.log
 2) pacman -Syu
 only upgrading pacman from 3.1.3 to 3.1.4
 3) pacman -S openssh --noconfirm --debug > upgrade.log
 (upgrading from 4.7 to 5.0 where default sshd_config was chaged)
 4) ls /etc/ssh/
 moduli  ssh_config  sshd_config  sshd_config.pacnew
 5) pacman -Qii openssh | grep -A3 Backup > Qii.txt

 Logs are attached.
 As can be seen from upgrade.log pacman makes a wrong decission when
 comparing existing, new and original md5sums (original is empty).
 I'm keeping that old snapshot so I can reproduce the issue again
 if more debugging is needed.
