I upgraded the website to OJS 126.96.36.199 in April 2021 and now I tried to upgrade it to OJS 188.8.131.52 but failed.
I have taken backup (OJS 184.108.40.206) with Softaculous before initiating the upgrade process.
After the failed upgrade I restored the website from Softaculous backup (OJS 220.127.116.11) but now restoration from fresh backup is displaying the following errors!

Please help me to solve this issue.
Note that I got successful message during backup and restore.
