Wrong category ordering on domain portal

Since 4.3-2e250 (Bug #47243), when the first app is installed on UCS, the app category will be displayed below the adminstration category on the domain portal. 

Updated systems with at least one app installed will have the correct order (as the services category was not empty while updating), this applies to new installations.

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #47243 +++
Comment 1 Johannes Keiser univentionstaff 2018-10-30 11:56:25 CET
Another problem:

The creation of the univentionblog portal_entry object when installing or upgrading UCS causes the univentionblog portal_entry to be before the UMC portal_entry + overwriting previously saved ordering of portal_entry objects.

- Which portal_entry object is shown on which portal is no longer
  determined via the 'portal' property of settings/portal_entry
  but via the 'content' property of settings/portal.
- In univention-portal.postinst all settings/portal_entry
  entry objects are mapped to the 'content' property of all settings/portal
  objects accordingly (while respecting the 'portalEntriesOrder' property of
- But before univention-portal.postinst runs,
  univention-portal.univention-config-registry is installed,
  creating the 'univentionblog' portal entry (if applicable),
  causing 'portalEntriesOrder' to be overwritten,
  breaking the mapping of the previous point.

Advisory & Changelog: OK
Package installs: OK

Tested with Upgrade from 4.3-2e234 to 4.3-2e298+testing Repo

Old portal with only UMC entry. App install after upgrade: OK
Old portal with only UMC entry. App install before upgrade: OK
Old portal with UMC + custom Entry. App install after upgrade: OK

Categories and the univentionblog entry behave like before. Machines already on an errata level of >=250 cannot benefit from the fix anymore.
