Should I install lipstick? If yes how can I make this in terminal?
pkcon install --allow-reinstall lipstick
Should I install busybox-symlinks-bash new? If yes how can I make this in terminal?
pkcon install --allow-reinstall busybox-symlinks-bash
Should I reinstall gnu-bash? If yes how can I make this in terminal?
pkcon install --allow-reinstall gnu-bash

I found the reason on my own now. :grinning:
It seems like SystemDataScope the app was the reason. I uninstalled it and with it also the subprogram collectd and Rebuild app registry with Sailfish-Utilities. Restart and everything works. I can now restart the homescreen aggain and the patchmanager can also do it. So for all who want to update SFOS, please uninstall the apps beforehand, similar to callrecorder or phonbook. Maybe I could help other users.
