Upgrade to J4.2.5 error: Class "Joomla\Plugin\Task\Checkfiles\Extension\Checkfiles" not found

I need help with a nasty problem. I'm upgrading several sites to J4. First one without a problem, now I'm stucked. After upgrading from J3.10.11 tot 4.2.5 there' is a screen with an error message:

0 Class "Joomla\Plugin\Task\Checkfiles\Extension\Checkfiles" not found
I tried to get to components or system, but that doesn't work.
Is there a way to solve this problem or work around it?
Thanks for reading this.

In Global Configuration, set Debug System to Yes and Error Reporting to Maximum. Then go to the Dashbard and see what the stack trace says. It is probably an incompatible plugin that needs to be disabled.
