Description of my issue:

I have some installations with Akeeba Backup Core which I want to upgrade to Pro.
Unfortunately it does not work with 2x or 3x installation. With the next update it always wants to install the update for the Core version.

Yep, you hit a Joomla bug. It did not replace the update site. It either forgot to install the Pro version's update site or it just added it next to the Core update site. You can fix it, though.

Go to Extensions, Manage, Update, Update Sites

In the Search box type

Akeeba Backup

and click on the magnifying class icon button.

Select all update sites using the checkboxes on the left hand column.

Click on Delete in the toolbar.

Go to Components, Akeeba Backup. This will automatically reinstall the correct update site in Joomla.
