Unfortunately it simply seems that your IPB install is missing a table that we would usually expect to be present.

Can you think of why that table would be missing? You'll likely need to troubleshoot this from the IPB side - essentially that table will need to be available and hopefully contain the relevant data.
So that would be profile_portal then? It would seem after looking things over that didn't get carried over when I imported my current DB. I'll try and see why that is.

That table includes some user information that we import, as well as data relating to avatars.
