I'm sorry for my mistake -- the problem was that the swap partition lost its
UUID for some reason, so swapon -a showed that it didn't find the device
with the UUID mentioned in /etc/fstab.
Just in case another novice encounters this (and for my own reference), I
followed the instructions in https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SwapFaq to
> sudo fdisk -l
to find the device with Linux swap / Solaris type.
> sudo swapoff -a
> sudo /sbin/mkswap </dev/something>
> sudo swapon -a
Thanks a lot for your detailed answer!
