Contacts top widget just shows three dot spinner and MySQL error in log file

I’m using SuiteCRM 8.2.4 and when I display a Contact record the top widget just shows the three moving dots. Rest of page looks ok but the system hangs with the animated logo when i try to logoff.

suitecrm.log shows…

Wed May 10 13:11:02 2023 [832638][1][FATAL] Mysqli_query failed.
Wed May 10 13:11:02 2023 [832638][1][FATAL] SubpanelCustomQueryPort: Error executing custom query Query Failed: SELECT emails.date_sent_received as emails_date_sent ORDER BY emails_date_sent DESC LIMIT 1: MySQL error 1109: Unknown table ‘emails’ in field list

Looks like a missing “FROM” clause?
