Please confirm that the issue is what I show on the attached screenshot.

Please correct the following and see if it helps to solve the problem.

1. Update WPML, WooCommerce Multilingual, and all of the other WPML add-ons. I can see that they are not updated on your site. So please update everything. In addition, please also update WooCommerce itself.

**** Important! Please make a full site backup (files and DB) before you proceed with those steps****

2. By looking at the debug info that you have attached I can see that your server is running an older version of MySQL and also your server WP Memory Limit is set to 40M.
Our recommendations are to have the following as minimal requirements:
- PHP 5.6 and above (this OK with your installation) with a WP Memory Limit of at least 128MB and more if possible.
- MySQL 5.6 and above (this OK with your installation).
Please follow this link for detailed documentation:
Is it possible for you to change those to the minimum requirement?
You may need to contact your hosting provider for that.
Meeting those baseline requirements is most critical before starting to debug and sometimes solves issues like you experiencing.
Most important is to raise the WP Memory Limit.
Please try to raise it before you contact your hosting company.
You can try and do it from the wp-config.php file in your WordPress installation.
Insert this code in that file.

/** Memory Limit */
define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '256M');
define( 'WP_MAX_MEMORY_LIMIT', '256M' );

Add it before this line:
/* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */

Could you please perform those procedures and see if they help?

Hi Itamar,

> Updated WPML, WooCommerce Multilingual and all the other WPML add-ons.

It didn't work.
Do you have more suggestions?

Thank you for your help.
