So this was indeed it, according to what you write below: The Creator
plugin was force-disabled because the qbscore dependency was missing.

Well, that's obviously an installer bug. According to
https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-47275, it also appears with other
components. You might want to comment on and/or vote for that issue.

According to the code, you should have gotten two warnings here: One
saying something like "Product qbscore had errors and was disabled", and
one saying "Disabling product QbsProjectManager, because it depends on
disabled product qbscore". You are saying you only got the former?
