Hmmm.... That doesn't happen on clean installations. I'm guessing this is an upgraded website. It being an upgrade isn't the cause though. The error message is actually very vague and you're probably going to need to have someone work on the website in a local development environment to troubleshoot the issue.

You may try adding Asset Management module on a portal page.
