8 – drush config:import “There are no changes to import.” for “content” view

On a Drupal 8.7.14 system with Drush 9.7.2, I modified the “content” view and now want to roll it back to the previous version that was exported with drush cex.

Unfortunately, drupal does not roll it back to the previous state. drush config:import only says:

There are no changes to import.


I did then delete the “content” view, and the import said:

Operation create für views.view.content: “view” entity with ID “content” already exists.

To circumvent that, I created the view manually and tried to import the original configuration. Again, drupal thinks that:

There are no changes to import.

Why is that?
What can I do to force Drupal to restore the original configuration?
