Why are you using the auto-updater, have you been modifying the core files?

I don't know how the install is related to anything but the issue is probably with a custom bbcode.html file. Judging by the error message, there's a {TEXT} token used ambiguously somehow. Replace the custom bbcode.html with the one from the default style until you find which one triggers that error.
I wrote the thing that does BBCodes in 3.2.

I had the same issue. The problem was very probably in the vendor/s9e/ folder (as stated in the error message). Replacing the bbcode.html file from the orginal installation package didn't help.

I've solved the problem by performing a manual update instead of using that retarded semi-automated upgrade installer package (in my case 3.2.1 → 3.2.2). That means deleting the config.php file, /images, /store and /files folders from the package, deleting /vendor and /cache folders from the board folder and copying the whole that package to FTP. Then I run the installer again. Then everything finally worked.
