I have recently upgraded my DotNetNuke website from 5.6.3 to 6.0.0. After the update, I observe the following errors

- When I click into any second-level pages (i.e the ones in the drop-down menu) this message would appear: "An error has occurred. An error has occurred. "
- When I log in as host, and click any menu items under 'Admin' or 'Host', this message would appear:  
An error has occurred. DotNetNuke.Services.Exceptions.PageLoadException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object. ---> System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object. at DotNetNuke.UI.Skins.Controls.LeftMenu.CheckShowPath(Int32 tabId, RadPanelItem panelItemToCheck, String pageName) at DotNetNuke.UI.Skins.Controls.LeftMenu.BuildPanelbar(RadPanelItemCollection rootCollection) at DotNetNuke.UI.Skins.Controls.LeftMenu.OnLoad(EventArgs e) at System.Web.UI.Control.LoadRecursive() at System.Web.UI.Control.LoadRecursive() at System.Web.UI.Control.LoadRecursive() at System.Web.UI.Control.LoadRecursive() at System.Web.UI.Control.LoadRecursive() at System.Web.UI.Control.LoadRecursive() at System.Web.UI.Page.ProcessRequestMain(Boolean includeStagesBeforeAsyncPoint, Boolean includeStagesAfterAsyncPoint) --- End of inner exception stack trace ---
