I am getting the following Fatal Error when I try to update to WP 4.7:

I tried on the live site at nmrb.org and had to restore from backup. Then tried on my wamp server and got this same exact error.

I have updated 12 other websites using other themes with no problems on the same live server so thought maybe it is related to the Synapse theme?

Any help, or suggestions please…

Hello, I’m sorry to learn you’re having problems.
The site owner (Casey) is unhealthy and has hired me to participate in resolving outstanding issues while he is away.

Are all of the other sites you’ve successfully updated using the same plugins? The error message indicates something is either corrupt in the WordPress core filesystem or there is a plugin that is causing conflict.

You may try replacing your core files with a fresh installation of WordPress *except for the wp-config.php and wp-content directory - backup first. If you still get errors, then it’s probably either the plugin, child theme, or theme (in that order).

** I tried replicating this problem by installing WordPress 4.0, Installing/Activating Synapse, Updating to WordPress 4.7. Did not receive error.
