comment What can I do when my Time Machine password is not accepted, although it's correct?
No, I checked that in a cleartext window, the layout was as expected. (I also tried swapping y/z keys which I would need for the German layout.)

Questions don't necessarily have to be exactly the same to be considered as duplicates. It's primarily about pointing to the right answer.

comment How can I find out when a USB device was disconnected without ejecting?
Thanks, I found those messages. Now the question is… if the Mac is sleeping while the drive is unplugged, will the messages be logged with the timestamps of the Mac waking up or when the drive was actually removed? Can't test it now, as I (obviously) don't have a drive to test with anymore :) It seems like it's the time when the Mac wakes up…

comment App Store asks for old Apple ID when installing updates
I never said I reinstalled OS X. I simply created a new user account. Tetsujin's answer basically gives the solution.

comment App Store asks for old Apple ID when installing updates
Hm. And the owner cannot be transferred? For other apps it'd be simple enough to just re-install them, but with the complete OS, that's almost impossible to do without wasting hours of time.

comment App Store asks for old Apple ID when installing updates
I should have mentioned that these pending updates include OS X system software updates (security updates), not only purchased apps. I now removed the only purchased app from the Mac and I could successfully perform the update when canceling the password request. But I probably have to wait until the next security update to confirm if this is a long term solution.
