That is definitely a dns problem and you posted this as part of your
join command in your intial post:

samba-tool domain join cyberfusion.cloud DC -k yes

Which would make your realm CYBERFUSION.CLOUD , so why are you getting 
'ADMINISTRATOR at CYBERFUSION' above ? Hopefully it is just a
cut&paste/typo error.

As for upgrading, I would hold off on that, it seems that there may be
problems with the Debian Samba packages when used as a DC.
