    My question:
    Is there a plugin, script or whatever which allows me to manage more than one blog?

    For example if wordpress releases an update the script or plugin should implement this update to all blogs. And a second usefull function would be to copy existing blogs with all plugins etc. So my idea is to create one blog as mainblog with all plugins etc and then I dublicate this blog some times. Then I can concentrate on modifying the template, keywords, rss-feeds etc.

    Wordpress Multi-User / WPMU does this exactly.
    Google it.

    Another way to do what you want is with a known WP hack that enables multi WP blogs with 1 WP instalation and 1 DataBase.
    The trick is in the wp-config.php and after that just put the new domains as alias for the first domain.
    You can read about it here :

    I'm using this with WordPress 2.8.5 and works like a charm.

    Backup, backup, backup and backup... :D

    It's almost the same risk if you have 1 DB foreach WP in the same MySQL server... at least this way it's only one backup for all sites.
