Thanks Sunil,

(I have been about to submit this mail 2 hours ago when suddenly my box
froze (plinth and ssh not responding). I let it "cook" for a while
because I thought it might be busy but now I did a hard reset as
nothing had changed).

that resolved the issue with the updates and apparently also with
libpam from my other mail.

still remains.

Doing a dist-upgrade, I receive the following message (in German but I
am sure you could read it; translated by myself):

By the way, would discuss.freedombox.org be the right place for these
topics or this discussion forum?

I will probably buy a new microSD card and set the box up from scratch
next week. Having been one of the first adopters and having tempered
with the system a bit there might have been some issue accumulated.
