Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately iwd has some issues in my case, 
like packet loss and much more higher pings. I'm testing iwd from time 
to time (as NM-backend) to check if it got better.

Unfortunately it did not work - neither with iwd or with heftig's 
updated wpa_supplicant. wpa_supplicant says:
Failed to select authenticated key management type

I think rtw88 is to blame in this case, as my Thinkpad X270 used for 
work with intel chipset on Ubuntu 20.04 is connecting fine.

Best Regards
