I have both versions. The old version (2017b) still has command history.

The command history is saved as history.xml for different versions. See if you can simply copy over the file.
C:\Users\XYZ\AppData\Roaming\MathWorks\MATLAB\R2019b\History.xml
C:\Users\XYZ\AppData\Roaming\MathWorks\MATLAB\R2018b\History.xml

This applies to windows machines, and i am Mac. However, I found out how to do it and am now fine.

On a Mac, I went to /Users/XYZ/Library/Pallication Support/Mathworks/Matlab/R2017a ( old version)
and copied the history.xml file to the same sort of directory but ending with R2019b ( new version).
Thanks
