Ok Gianluigi,

it is Ubuntu 18 Mate, and I did

apt-get update
apt-get upgrade

It updated some of the things and a lot of Gambas things. What else 
would you like to know?

Of course, the original log has gone, but I can call the two again:

root at server:~# apt-get update
OK:1 http://ppa.launchpad.net/gambas-team/gambas3/ubuntu bionic InRelease
OK:2 http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic InRelease 

OK:3 http://ppa.launchpad.net/ts.sch.gr/ppa/ubuntu bionic InRelease 

OK:4 http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic-updates InRelease 

OK:5 http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic-backports InRelease 

OK:6 http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic-security InRelease
