Category base gone after WordPress update

Question

Problem:

After updating WordPress to version 5.5.1 I noticed that some URLs changed.

The way it used to be:

Links to the category page: my/website/category/my-category-name
Links to the articles: my/website/category/my-article-name

The way it is right now:

Links to the category page: my/website/my-category-name (note that /category/ is gone)
Links to the articles: my/website/category/my-article-name

Permalink settings:

The permalinks are set to show the include the category base (): /%category%/%postname%/. The optional area are blank to make use wordpress default settings.

I did some testing with those settings, such as trying to set different names for the category base, but it diddn’t seem to have any effect. How can I restore the the old URL structure, so that /category/ is included in the category URLs again?
Any ideas on how to tackle this are much appreciated.
