Hiya, and welcome to Trac!

This error indicates you are visiting the website using an IPv6 connection, but the version of PHP running on your server has not been built with support for IPv6.

You should contact your host about this, if you need further assistance I'd recommend posting on the WordPress support forums, as Trac is intended for bugs and enhancements in the WordPress core software, and this is a server configuration issue.

You can find an existing post about this at https://wordpress.org/support/topic/error-after-upgrading-to-4-8-class-wp-community-events-php/#post-9215259 if you'd like to follow it.
