This shouldn't be happening on the current version of the importer. Please ensure you're up-to-date and working on a brand new import (not resuming an old one) .

The version of the Xenforo and importer are the latest. I have tried few times importing from fresh install and same result..

There's possibly one edge case... what is the full name/urlident of the node/forum in vB5 that starts with the-toxic-zone-? Does it contain any non-standard or emoji characters?

That still leads me to believe then that somehow you aren't using the latest version of the importers.

If you perform a File health check (Tools > File health check) are there any files with unexpected contents?

In the file src/addons/XFI/Import/Importer/vBulletin5.php can you find the following around line 530?
? md5($forum['urlident'])


Yes, that code is present on src/addons/XFI/Import/Importer/vBulletin5.php

All 4,604 checked files are present and correct.

Xenforo 2.1.4
XenForo Importers 1.2.4

I tried again to import and this error happened:
