SSH says "connection refused" since recalbox 6.0

hope somebody here can help me. I just installed Recalbox 6.0 on my SD card and so far everything works fine except for the ssh connect from my Mac. Whenever I try to execute "ssh root@recalbox" it says: "connection refused".
What I checked so far:
- empty file ssh in /boot exists
- should not be a network issue because I can access the web interface and have the file share as well
- the option "system.ssh.enabled=1" is set correctly in recalbox.conf
- message log says: Service "RECALBOX" (/etc/avahi/services/ssh.service) successfully established. --> looks fine
With the last Recalbox version the ssh connect worked fine, so no problem with any firewall/whatever. Any idea what the problem could be and how to solve it?
Thanks & best regards,

@elbino try ssh -v root@recalbox to have some information and paste the result of the command, are you using key authentification or password ?

@dstroy: With param -v it just says:
OpenSSH_7.9p1, LibreSSL 2.7.3
debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh/ssh_config
debug1: /etc/ssh/ssh_config line 48: Applying options for *
debug1: Connecting to recalbox port 22.
ssh: connect to host recalbox port 22: Connection refused
And I'm using the default authentication with user/password. No advanced security stuff activation.

Same issue, it always worked for me until 6.x, now it always says connection refused. I can ping the Pi fine from commandline, so the network does work.
@shira please open a new topic
