Well it isn't just that simple...firstly is your bootloader locked ? Go to the Updater app and tap the three dots top right and reboot to recovery mode and take note of the recovery you have installed...if you see something that looks like your phone with a USB cord then your bootloader is locked and you will need to request an unlock code.. if you see TWRP recovery or Mi Recovery we can proceed from there.... give it a look ...

I can reboot to recovery mode (Mi-Recovery 2.0.1) then 4 options Reboot-Wipe&Reset-Install update.zip-Power Off
By the way the installed version is MIUI7.0.4(LXKCNCI)

After updating from MIUI7.0.4.0 to MIUI7.2.4.0 the Google Play Store App is lost, Also the Gmail App is no long availabl

Ho can i go back to the factory setting MIUI7.0.4.0 ??? and then installing the Libra Update ???
Did you create a backup of the previous version? if so boot to recovery and restore from backup...if you didn't make a backup you can do the following:
This will NOT take you back to the previous version but you can install Play Store and Google Play Services...

The Google Play Store issue is fixed, thank you ! But Installing the MIUI7.0.4.0 with the Updater App gives the ERROR Can't verify update. It lookes like I can't get into the revory mode ? HELP. Do I have to fastboot with MiFlash ??

I think that you locked your bootloader with that update... What version of 7.2.4.0 did u use? Global or .EU?

Yep, almost certain u locked your bootloader. The bootloader is a protection on the software that prevents you to flash other ROM's on the mobile... Without an unlocked bootloader u're stuck on the ROM u have...

U need to try and unlock it either asking Xiaomi for a unlock code or trying the method explained in the MIUI forums.

Tried it a few days ago with 6.4.7 global and it worked just fine, just remember to backup the data and do factory reset on the ROM u have atm.

After unlocking it's just flash twrp and then the ROM u want.
