DNN menu is broken after the upgrade of DNN from version 7.1.2 to 8.0.4. Admin and host are working but broken whereas Modules, pages, tools are leaving blank pages. Is there a possible solution for this?

Can you see any logs caught in event viewer? May be upgrade had some issue, but more info over exceptions if you have, can help to know the cause of issue you getting.

 Please note that the DNN menu is broken for the site and "event viewer " is not working. I am pasting the error that we are getting from the error log below:

regarding your error message, you should delete all fines in app_Data/search Folder and re-index your site.
but you should try to fix the issue with your admin and host menu.
