Forgot to say, that it also doesn't work by uploading a patch through the extension manager ...

Use the Forum Post Assistant.

Is Allow_fopen enabled on the server?

Some hosts have a server /logs folder in the root that can not be written to. If that is the case and you can select the Domain names root folder in the Hosts CP ... then put Joomla in a sub folder and name that folder as the root for the Domain name.
