Maybe not quite enough information. You're talking about the umlaut not 
showing up in the text frame or Story Editor? What about when you use 
Insert > Glyph? Can you see it in the dialog?
Story Editor uses its own font, and sometimes the SE font does not have 
the glyph even though your chosen font does. And the opposite can occur 

You may also have to check to see if Scribus is finding your font: File
