1) i replaced folders cms, sapphire and jsparty uploaded and run /dev/build?flush=1
Version Number 2.3.3 was still shown in Backend
2) replaced folder themes and root files and run again /dev/build?flush=1
Version Number 2.3.3 was still shown in Backend
3) edited in LeftAndMain.php the static link output and changed it back to original
4) Went for a cup of tea, thinking and then i relogging...suddenly i reveive a website error for the backend, frontend works fine.

5) Done a /admin/?isDev=1

The fact that you still see 2.3.3 in the CMS footer really indicates to me that you over-wrote the core directories on top of 2.3.3. That number is pulled from the "version" file inside each directory. So that file hasn't updated, who knows what else.

I've had trouble with this in the past. These days if the update is a manual one like this, I will upload the core directories as a different name (e.g. "sapphire2"). Then delete the originals and rename the new directories. Followed by a Dev build.

Ay damn...i tricked myself ^.^

I deleted the old files inside my workspace, put the new inside that directory and uploaded them to the server. But i did not delete them on the server -.-'

I got exactly the same problem: after Dompie's steps 1) and 2), and went to admin/dev/build - I still have version 2.3.3 shown in the backend. But the version files in css, saphire and jsparty (on the server) tell me it is SS 2.3.6.

Ok, I skipped the editing and the tea, but it should be the upgraded version anyway, shouldn't it?

Thanks for your help

make sure to (first) delete the old folders and then paste the new folders.

well, my problem was the core folder on my Hetzner-Server, public_html. It links to somewhere else, so if it is overwritten or deleted, the content is not touched here. (Maybe it´s the save-mode for idiots like me...) Anyway, never touch the public_html on Hetzner, just replace the folders inside. Nevertheless, you can call them and they will restore the folder with the ss2.3.3 (or whichever) from 'somewhereelse' and you can see the two folders with the old and the newer version.
And then, yes, it is a good way two rename the folders you would like to upload, then upload them in that public_html-file, delete the old ones from the sever and rename the new ones. (dev_build + flush)
Worked fine for my and now it´s time for tea....
