When trying to publish photos to flickr.com I am getting the following error message "Cant update this collection. An internal error occurred: a semicolon character was expected"

I havent changed anything on my settings and recently it worked without any problem. Is there any idea how I could fix this?

It's a Flickr API problem that crops up periodically. There's nothing you can do except wait for Yahoo (owner of Flickr) to fix the issue. It seems the fix usually only takes a few hours to a few days.
