It looks like openvpn has been migrated to systemd.  The old command:

   service openvpn start

should still start it, but the systemd style command is

   systemctl start openvpn.service

The systemd file that is the closest equivalent to /etc/init.d/openvpn is

   /lib/systemd/system/openvpn at .service
