I didn’t deactivate the Ickstream plugin before but now I did, which solved the issue.
It probably is due to the fact that Ickstream’s services are discontinued on May 31st 2019. I came across more users who experienced the same issue (panel at 9000 nor players were accessible).
For other users who experience the same:
Go to /var/lib/squeezeboxserver/cache/InstalledPlugins/Plugins/IckstreamPlugin (or the path where your Ickstream plugin reside)
sudo rm Plugin.pm
This enabled me to open the panel again at port 9000 where I removed the Ickstream plugin.
Alternatively, you could do the same as in this post: https://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?110624-How-do-you-uninstall-a-plugin-without-the-web-UI-(Linux)&p=942053#post942053
Thanks for guiding me, Heiner!
