    Hi Bruce, my first guess would be that the used version of CiviCRM is not compatible with the used version of PHP. So it's useful to add this info to your question. Jan 6, 2021 at 16:59

My assumption is that you are using PHP 7.4. Dat version does not support curly braces syntax. See this answer on stackexchange https://stackoverflow.com/questions/59158548/array-and-string-offset-access-syntax-with-curly-braces-is-deprecated . A downgrade to PHP 7.3 will help. That is also the highest supported version, see https://docs.civicrm.org/installation/en/latest/general/requirements/ .

Another option is to fix the issue and create a patch for it. A remark on the https://lab.civicrm.org/dev/core/-/issues/1496 will also help.
