It really looks I'll have to keep my Jolla sbj1 forever in reserve even as I have switched using ported Nexus5 as daily driver...
I had thought of selling or donating it but it seems I just cannot.

Since the Nexus only sees a limitd selection on Harbour (just the same 16 apps always, never more) I need to first download anything new with sbj1 and only after that I can install them to Nexus with pkcon/zypper...

I understand the core reasoning; Jolla cannot allow ported devices free access to Store since it is about the only proprietary part they have and using it is good for the licencing deals.
However it would be nice if those users that have registered their Jolla account with a genuine device could access it with ported devices too.

The store works fine on Fairphone 2, maybe ask Mal- what he did to get it working?

Since i barely use the jolla store i checked it after reading this thread. It displayed only a few apps. I solved this by starting the terminal app and checked the enabled repos with

ssu lr

The store repo was missing, i enabled it with

ssu ar store

and refreshed the repos with

pkcon refresh

and now all the apps are back.

Unfortunately it dose not work for me.

Whay I did is;
  • 1.) remove Jolla account from settings->accounts
  • 2.) wait about 15 minutes in case there are background processes that need to do some cleanup
  • 3.) recreate my account in settings

No change in store access, can still see just the same 16 apps, nothing more.

Jolla has solved it....

Allright, it has been solved now!

Thousand thanks to @sledges & @pketo who fixed it; now my Nexus5 sees all the applications in the store!

How it happened; it seems that the store has already been open for all ported Nexus4, Nexus5 and Fairphone2 devices, however when the store backend was updated some time ago there was a regression that blocked the Nexus5 devices off. Now that bug in configuration has been resolved and Nexus5 users can access Harbour again.
