I had to reboot the device after the connectivity bug hit me. First attempt to go online with an android app failed, sailfishos was fine, all android apps I checked were unable to connect to their servers so I checked again by pinging a website - worked.

Stopping aliendalvik.service and starting an android app that needs internet from the start worked out.

Was the first time this occurred to me but from reading other reports about alien-dalvik loosing connection this might be not only a temporary hick-up.

So now it is gone completely and killing alien-dalvik hit another bug (black screen green flashing led) I uninstalled android support and reinstalled, after reboot still no connection.

Was it affecting both your WLAN and 3G/4G connection or only one of them? My problem is that my Android apps have connectivity when I'm using 3G/4G but not when using WLAN. To make it more complex, Android Skype works with WLAN but all the other Android apps return some connection errors.
