Thank you for contacting WPML Support. It is safe just to dismiss that notice as it could be a one-time event due to updates, all will be fine for WPML then. We had a similar issue before, but it was handled already in the current version. You see this error since you are just upgrading from the old version (which produced that error) to the new one.

In case you can’t dismiss this notice, you can solve it by removing the empty value from your database table "wp_icl_strings" using database tool like PHPMyAdmin or similar. Before doing that please Backup your database and website for safety.

Please, see a reference to this issue in another ticket here.

Is dismissing the message solves the issue for you?
