Hi Christian,

I guess one reason must be some changes in NodeType.yaml, I renamed some 
properties and moved them from one package to another.

I made a clean install and installed all my application packages and 
everything worked suddenly. But rescuing the page with already included 
content seemed not possible. Clearing caches didn't help so I gave up 
and moved on with the new instance.

Thanks for your reply!
