Trying to open the URLs I'm successful and Firefox displays the xml content.
I could update some other extensions successfully.
When using the update button in JEM I get the following message:
Update server currently not available. Please try again later!
Joomla! 3.8.3 Stable
I'm aware that I'm on the current version but I wouldn't expect to see theses kind of errors if all works correctly. Hence my query to the forum if others are experiencing them or what to do to not get them.

I'm now trying to upgrade to the new 2.2.3 via the update check menu entry.
Do you mean the Update check of JEM? This is a check only (which I must redesign or remove because we support Joomla's update mechanism yet). To update JEM you must use Joomla's extension manager.
But regarding the "server not available" messages:
Is this limited to JEM? Are other update sites accessible? (e.g. via Extensions - Manager - Updates) - otherwise maybe a problem with cURL. Another idea: Have you configured your site to Force HTTPS? (on Global Configuration - Server Settings) Maybe your site is not willing to use http w/o ssl/tls.
Because I don't have a ssl site I can't test this. You could change the "http..." url to "https.." in file administrator/components/com_jem/models/updatecheck.php (line 36) and then try JEM's Update check menu entry. Wrong idea. Brought one of my hosts to tls and played around - no problem found. http urls works also fine with Force HTTPS set to anything other than None. So my only idea left yet is a problem with cURL or somewhat on server is filtering out hosts or ip address ranges - why ever.
