I know I was using a different device back then (Xperia X Compact), but in the end it was the same ROM developer and the phones are, from a chip perspective, very similar. The issue you mentioned is exactly the issue I had with the phone, too. Lots of satellites in sight, but no GPS lock, or no GPS lock without waiting for 20 mins.
HAPPY UPDATE !
IT'S WORKING =D !
GPS Test was a wrong app to test Glonass ( it don't work ),
" Harnisch Statut GNSS " is working well ( it's using Open Maps too ^^ )
Actually I've tried it outside my building, without a simcard : localised with a lot of satellites !
But in my building I get nothing : that's just so stupid !

Will lineage Os send my position to google or KGB or what else ?!

There is the open source app GPSTest that you guys could use as a help to see what's going on.
I never tried GPS on this device without a simcard being inserted in case that could play a role. Idk.
My sony Xperia X suzu have a russian Glonass instead of an american GPS, so the satellite's localisation work with GNSS app ( like Harnisch Statut GNSS 9.8d )

Localizing inside buildings using only GPS/GLONASS is generally usually impossible. If the device can also access location data via the cellphone and WLAN connections it can work roughly. But it has nothing to do with the ROM and it's not stupid but physics.
LineageOS won't send your location, though your mobile provider can still locate you and of course if you allow apps to locate you and install stuff like GApps it's obvious what happens.

( No Gapps, no MicroG, only free APK ! ;-) )

Good, if you mean free as free & open source.
I am using only open source app on my wiko UFeel, to call, to sms, to take picture, ect... ( this is my actual phone, so I collect all of APK on a MiniSD before ).
On my Ufeel, tons of google apps are runing too, communicating in background, and it is draining the battery for nothing.
That's why I've bought a Sony Xperia to learn how to build a non google smartphone ;-).
When the Xperia X will work well ( really soon ! ), I'll only keep the UFeel to use banking aps, in wifi mode at home.
The only ap that are going to miss to me a lot are Cross Dj and FL Studio Mobile ( I've payed the full price for it. So if I can get it anyway I will except if I'll find some good free and open source stuff, like MIXXX or LMMS on Computer ).
 
Hi there, do I need to flash any specific version of magisk with this rom? I've tried to flash the latest magisk version right after flashing this rom and then the phone wouldn't boot, it kept on showing the sony logo. I really need root so any help would be great. Thanks! 😃

    The new build is available!

    It was decided to release another final build.
    The main reason for this was to solve an issue with the fingerprint scanner, when it could become unavailable after a while.
    As a bonus, this build also includes July security patches.
