Fixed – An unrecoverable error has occurred. Please contact your system administrator error while uploading the profile picture in SharePoint 2013


Hi ,

got the below error while trying to upload profile picture for the user.

The reason was because no My Site was configured.

Profile picture getting updated.

Hope it helps..
