Recover Jolla 1 from lipstick start failure [answered]

Hi all!

My Jolla 1 suffers a total lipstick startup failure after a failed update.

What happend?
I took it from the drawer after ~3years and wanted to set it up for my daughter.
SW version was 2.0.x and the first two updates to 3.1.x succeeded.
I then played around with it to show Jolla 1 to a visiting friend and must have enabled patchmanager2 in the process.
When i now tried to further update to 3.2.1.20 in the evening it failed at ~50% of the installs with some error mentioning to "deactivate all patches".
Great, i am an idiot...
I then deactivated all patches and removed patchmanager in the hope a second update try would fix it.
The second version --dup went through without errors but after reboot i have no lipstick whatsoever.
Since the install is really fleshed out and was fully set up to my needs i am not keen to do reset in recovery mode and loose it all.

What would i need to do to completely reinstall lipstick? Would that even help?

Ssh connection works and if i try to start or restart lipstick manually i get:

[root@Sailfish nemo]# systemctl --user restart lipstick
Job for lipstick.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status lipstick.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.

systemctl status says:

[root@Sailfish nemo]# systemctl status lipstick.service
● lipstick.service
   Loaded: not-found (Reason: No such file or directory)
   Active: inactive (dead)

journalctl says:
