TeXLive 2020, Can't use lualatex on Windows

Hi all,

I try to compile a small LaTeX-file (the content doesn't matter), it
ends with an error message

Der Prozedureinsprungpunkt "u8getmbstring" wurde in der DLL
"E:\texlive\2020\bin\win32\luahbtex.dll" nicht gefunden

the English version would be something like

The procedure entry point "u8getmbstring" wasn't found in the DLL

The same happens when I try to update my TeXLive 2020 installation using
TLShell.exe (tlmgr works fine).

If I have a look at that DLL, I see a string "u8getmbstring". What can I

Kind regards
