"After upgrading to version 9, we decided not to use variants any more.  In version 8, we attached product information to variants, and we want these now attached to the product template"

Run this SQL in the database to move the attachment from the variant to the template:

update ir_attachment set res_model = 'product.template', res_id = p.product_tmpl_id 
from product_product p where p.id = res_id and res_model = 'product.product';
