Critical Error on Theme |

I have 2 websites both with Parallax Pro, and have recently been simplifying/updating both – removing or replacing Google Maps and other GDPR-unfriendly elements (the law in Germany is very strict).

One website has worked out fine but the other is now throwing an error every time I hit ‘Save’ anywhere in ‘Appearance/Theme Options’:

“There has been a critical error on this website. Please check your site admin email inbox for instructions.”

I can get into the Admin tool no problem, I can add/activate/deactivate plug-ins no problem, and the public-facing site is working just fine. However I cannot do anything in ‘Appearance/Theme Options’ without that error getting thrown.

The resulting mail gives this:

An error of type E_ERROR was caused on line 115 of file /mnt/web008/c2/84/5379784/htdocs/klargehn/wp-content/themes/accesspress_parallax_pro/inc/options-framework/includes/class-options-sanitization.php.

By the way – the diagnostic email gives the following sys info:

WordPress-Version 5.6.11
Aktuelles Theme: Accesspress Parallax Pro (Version 4.0.1)
Aktuelles Plugin:  (Version )
PHP-Version 8.0.28

=> I have actually updated WP to version 6.2.2 today but there has not been an updated diagnostics mail
=> there is no option to update the Theme, though my other site is on version 4.0.5

Can anyone help here please? Many thanks in advance!
