The path is relative.

Try using ../phpBB3/images/avatars/upload

(I see you got the account/license sorted ;))

is it possible to skip importing the avatar and files? I'm having the same import errors
Only if the importer lets you skip those steps. Some steps must be run in order because they depend on each other.

Make sure you enter the correct path. I use a full server path myself.
