Bought and tried the cable but I have no working UART. 
So far I have tried both USB-ports on the Micro Desktop, powering with
the USB-port of my laptop and with the power supply (Output 5V, 2A). 
I think that the cable is working because it is new and it can load my
smartphone (with an additional USB-OTG female USB to Micro USB adapter). 
Is there anything else I can try?
It is frustrating. Without UART connection I don't know if anything
happens at all when connecting the USB cable to the Micro Desktop.
