Yesterday I closed lightroom, got the question if I wanted to quit, I said yes. Today I'm trying to open LR and only get a message that the catalogue I'm trying to open is already open in an other session, that I shoul close that session. But I didn´t open it anywhere else. If I try to open the older version, I get the message that there is a an updated version of my catalogue, that I should open that. If I try it, I again get the first message and there is no way that LR will open.

Have you tried uninstalling it then installing it and then opening it?

It would seem that there is a lock file that didn't get deleted in the folder where your catalog is located. Using your system file browser, open the folder that contains your catalog and look for a folder with the lock extension. If that file exists then delete it, and then Lightroom should function normally.
