O.K. ... After I have done this, ksysguard starts as normal.

That may be, but the only problem I have is with ksysguard and
nothing else ... And that old is neither my HD nor my PC at all
(although there are some older disks attached to this PC ... ;) ).

As I am using apt-get to update my system, I have never tried to
update my system via dpkg. And as I am short of time atm (and maybe
the next months ... :( ), I am not able to read the dpkg
documentation/man page and to test it, sorry ... :( As ksysguard
works for me again, this bug could be closed as "worksforme",
although I find it astonishing, that an system update via apt-get
leads to an unfunctional program ... :(

answered you instead of both ... :(
