Yes, sbc was installed already. A re-installation didn't help.
The problem could be solved in another way. After re-pairing did not
take effect, I searched once again for the complete error message and I
found a discussion  that showed the solution.
The ArchWiki  suggets to add in /etc/bluetooth/audio.conf section
"[General]" a line "Enable=Socket" for enabling audio-streaming. This
options seems to cause the problems I experienced (not caused by
pulseaudio but by bluez not cooperating completely with dbus API). In
the beginning there were two lines in my conf: "Enable=Source" and
"Enable=Socket". Then I removed the source-line after reading the
The solution is to remove "Socket" so the option is "Enable=".
Restarting the bluetooth daemon - and the log shows just an entry for
the succesful connection with the audio adapter.
