I decided to open a second Paypal account and to link it to my current Upwork email address.
That should clear all doubts - I hope.
Confirmation from your side would be very welcome, though!
Your Upwork and PayPal accounts should use the same email address. You can either change your Upwork email address to the one you are using with PayPal, or you can add the email address that you are using on Upwork to your PayPal account. Please check this help article. If you're unsure on how to add your email to your PayPal account, I would suggest that you please reach out to PayPal support for assistance.
