But there is no such option of enabling untrusted software installing in setting.

Settings -> System -> Untrusted Software

Check if the package jolla-settings-system-sideloading is installed, if not install it via pkcon install jolla-settings-system-sideloading. I experienced similar issues during a previous upgrade where on my phone, the package for developer mode was not upgraded correctly and missing afterwards.
