Aaaaaaaand the answer is:

"static-network-up is emitted by the /etc/network/if-up.d/upstart script,
crucially, the event will not be emitted unless every interface
configured as 'auto' in /etc/network/interfaces is up."


So, I had a wlan0 interface configured, and it has been in there,
actually, since around October 2016. Why it started being a problem
recently I can't guess. Anyways, I deleted those lines. It's starting
normally at boot now.
