Avatars not displaying or uploading correctly

Hi there, the avatars are not successfully uploading. I get to the part where it asks how I would like to crop it and I can see the image but then it doesn't show up. This is on a site where when I updated marketpress to 3.0 I have had significant problems. See thread. https://premium.wpmudev.org/forums/topic/fatal-error-on-marketpress-update#post-1081418
This avatar problem is not occurring on the live site that has not updated to marketpress 3.0.7 it is only happening on this staging site with the most updated marketpress. I think the avatar problem may be related to all my marketpress issues discussed in the thread above. I have allowed access to dash.
