Fatal Error in PHP.slugify(); when trying to reach /dashboard/settings/branding/

I upgraded from 2.3 to 2.6, and my dashboard would not work at all, at first.

I cleared the cache and tried a bunch of other ideas I found on the forum.

Most of it works now, except when I click on the Settings tab in the dashboard. I get this error message:

Can someone help me figure out how to fix this?

    I guess the key sentence is this: "Call to undefined function iconv()" you should enable the PHP extension iconv

    Also I would recommend to move to a higher PHP version. I start being suspicious of PHP7.0...
