does anybody know what hapend

The error message says exactly what is happening:

If you no longer have the checkpoint around, you can downgrade to a previous version of CTranslate2 which still supported the conversion of the SavedModel format:

pip install ctranslate2==1.*

do you mean tensorflow instead of ctranslate2?

import tensorflow as tf
if tf.saved_model.contains_saved_model(model_path):
        raise RuntimeError(
            "Converting the SavedModel format is not supported, "
            "please convert a TensorFlow checkpoint instead"

No, I meant CTranslate2. We recently removed the capability to convert the SavedModel format.
