It seems that NASA is again not willing to publish hi res versions of the official Russian crew portraits (prime and backup) and the six individual portraits.
Well, at Flickr NASA Johnson Expedition 48 are several portraits. But all of them are old. They were taken of the Soyuz TMA-19 backup crew.
We had the same situation with Soyuz TMA-20M.

Delays possibly related to the latest problems on the GLONASS-M launch (?)

MOSCOW, June 1. /TASS/. Launch of Soyuz MS manned spacecraft, which is due to take a new expedition to the International Space Station, has been rescheduled for July 7 from June 24 due to control system flaws that may disrupt the ship's docking with the ISS, a source in the Russian aerospace industry told TASS on Wednesday.

"The launch has been rescheduled for July 7," he said. "The crew is expected to come to Baikonur (the Russian space center located is Kazakhstan TASS) on June 24."
"Experts have established the ship will be rolling as it docks the ISS and they are unable to stop this rolling motion so far," the source said.

The rescheduling of the Soyuz MS launch has necessitated postponement of the launch of the Progress MS cargo spacecraft, initially planned for July 7. Under the new schedule, it may take place on July 17, the source said.

More detail in this TASS report in Russian :

http://tass.ru/kosmos/3331715

A recommendation to delay the launch will be made on Thursday to the State Corporation in charge of the launch and a final decision could follow the same day. The uncontrolled rolling motion was first believed to have been caused by a software glitch, but when the software was updated and tested in the simulator, the problem repeated itself.

This RIA report claims the launch will be rescheduled for July 8 and says the return to Earth of Malenchenko, Peake and Kopra will also be delayed.

TASS reports that RKK Energiya specialists have been given three more days to try and fix the problem. The State Commission will convene on 6 June to make a final decision on the launch date.

Does Soyuz MS have a Klest antenna?

No. GLONASS-M anomaly was due to the Malakhit-3 control system, which is used only on Soyuz-2 launchers.
Soyuz MS-01 will be launched by a Soyuz-FG launcher, which does not use Malakhit-5.
Launch delay of Soyuz MS-01 is due to an anomaly with the control system of the spaceship.

EDIT : Malakhit-3, not Malakhit-5, sorry.

Which is being phased out to the Malakhit-7 that flies in the Soyuz-2.1v and the Soyuz-2 from Voistochny, if I'm not mistaken.

Waiting to see if there are further scheduling impacts on the other visiting vehicle traffic in that late June-mid July period.

RIA Novosti quotes specialists as saying that a delay until July 7 or 8 is now almost inevitable, but a formal decision is still pending. The landing of Malenchenko, Peake and Kopra will probably be moved to July 2. However, the dates may change depending upon the exact orbital parameters of the ISS.

The latest on this from TASS is now that a recommendation will be made to bring back Soyuz TMA-19M on 18 June as previously scheduled, but to delay Soyuz-MS1 to 7 July. The faulty control unit of Soyuz-MS will be shipped to Moscow for a software upgrade.  Final decision expected Monday.

The Soyuz-MS-01 launch delay is now official, but the landing of Soyuz TMA-19M remains on schedule.

Quote
MOSCOW, June 6. /TASS/. Russia’s government commission has made a decision to postpone the launch of the manned Soyuz MS spacecraft to the International Space Station from June 24 till July 7, the state-run space corporation Roscosmos has said.
"For enhancing the safety of the newly modified spacecraft Soyuz MS’s flight to the ISS it has been decided to carry out more tests of software. The state commission has made a decision to launch the Soyuz FG rocket carrying the Soyuz-MS spacecraft till 04:36 Moscow time on July 7, 2016," the Roscosomos press-service has said.

The launch of another cargo spacecraft, Progress MS, has been delayed, too. Originally it was due on July 7. Now it has been scheduled for July 17.

Earlier, a source in the space rocket industry told TASS there was a possibility the launch of Soyuz MS may have to be postponed. He explained that specialists advised against hurrying with the launch as there was the risk of a glitch in the control system and problems while docking the new series spacecraft to the ISS.

The Soyuz MS is to deliver to the ISS Russia’s Anatoly Ivanishin, NASA’s Kathleen Rubins and Japan’s Takuya Onishi.

The State Commission has decided not to put off the return of a Soyuz-TMA-19M spaceship with 3 ISS crew members onboard to Earth from June 18 to a later date,  Roscosmos said.
"Soyuz TMA-19M is to land at 12:12 Moscow time on June 18, 2016," the press service said.
A number of media outlets reported earlier that the ISS crew could be asked to extend their stay at the station because of a possible delay of the launch of a new manned spaceship Soyuz-MS. But a source in the Russian rocket and space industry told TASS that experts had recommended not to postpone the ISS crew’s return. Soyuz TMA-19M will take Russian Yuri Malenchenko, American Timothy Copra and Briton Timothy Peak back to Earth.
