500 errors are server side errors. Please include the actual error from your server’s errorlog.

However, the other error suggests that you have a permissions problem.

I'm pretty sure it's the old custom avatar directory.

I think old documentation used that as an example for setting up a custom avatar folder.   My forum was configured that way as well.

The /avs folder almost certainly contains avatars uploaded by forum members. 

In 2.0, this was a user-named folder, but in the examples provided, the name /avs was used, and many folks just used that name.  (Look at recommendation #1 here:
https://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=293441.0)

In short, folks have a user-named folder in 2.0 for custom avatars, often /avs.  This corresponds to the /custom_avatar folder in 2.1. 

Since that folder is identified in your configuration, under Attachments & Avatars, it must be present and writable or the upgrade cannot work. 

I am not sure why it is not found, but I have a suggestion:   I suggest utilizing repair_settings.php, and carefully scrutinizing the folder name vs the recommended name.  Maybe there is a trailing space?   If all else fails, use the repair_settings.php recommendation for that folder and I suspect things will start working.
