Could this mean that my SSD dies?

Might be, but first try replacing the cable. I really do hope SSDs
last longer than four years, unless it runs full time.

And where is the output of Strg+Alt+F10 stored?

In the system log, /if/ the system doesn't crash before it can write
to the disk.

I canĀ“t find the i/o error messages in /var/log/messages, dmesg,
xsession-errors or boot.log. Are there other important log-files I

dmesg would show everything, if the system is still running after the
crash. boot.log would show nothing. "/var/log/messages" should have
the same as dmesg shows, /if/ it is enabled, because in 13.2 it is
not. Instead, you have to query "journalctl".

Which diag program do you use to check your SSD with mounted root?

smartctl :-)
See the man page, it has examples.

The test runs while the system runs, in the disk hardware, without
involving the system cpu. When it finishes, you just use "smartctl -a
/dev/sdX" to query the result.

I don't use SSD, but rotating disks, so there will be differences in
the output. There should be a life estimation.
