Yoast SEO plugin problem
My name is Tomonori Nagano and I am using CUNY Academic Commons for a few grant-funded projects. I am writing because it seems that one of the plugins (Yoast SEO) has some issue on Academic Commons now.
When I tried to activate Yeast SEO, this error shows up (see the screen shot). The developer's page says that this error often happens when the plug-in update was interrupted and re-updating the plugin will fix the issue.
When you have a chance, could you look into the problem and re-install the plug-in if necessary?
Thank you for your consideration.

This problem is due to some customizations put in place around primary database table keys. See #12598. The wordpress-seo plugin used to install a "meta" table without a primary key, and we intercepted this table creation at the time of activation to modify it as needed for our setup. But it appears that the new version of wordpress-seo doesn't include this table anymore. So the modification can be removed.
I've deployed this as a hotfix, since it was preventing users from being able to activate wordpress-seo.
