After upgrade I can't use browser and settings apps. I start "settings" -> new menu style "look and feel", "connectivity" etc -> then click on any menu item and nothing! just blank page and the same behaviour for entire menu. Browser starts with blank page and "program is not responding", camera app also doesn't work stable. I don't have any additional repos, top shows me just 10% cpu and minor memory usage. The others apps are working reasonably normal: phone, mail, messages, androids apps, notification screen.

Can I reinstall last update or downgrade to a previous one? Is reset the answer, if so how I can do backup and download it (menu isn't working)?

Just in case anyone has the same problem.

Official support only advised me to perform factory reset. What wasn't a great idea though. I tried other options before reseting. I downgraded successfully to through ssu re/version --dup. All my files/apps were in place and I got back phone functionality.

Once was announced I turned on early updates and got OTA. Meantime shortly after download started I received GUI error "cannot determine download size", next was pkcon refresh with "Error: Authentication failed (is SSU set up correctly?)". Some googling and here it was: https://together.jolla.com/question/120017/cant-update-to-20010-fatal-error-authentication-failed-is-ssu-set-up-correctly/ Once you disable repository and after that switch to a new release you need to disable it again. Now is up and running, pkcon refresh also works.
