After an upgrade done through the shell I get this error:

a:5:{i:0;s:221:"Error in file: “/var/www/vhosts/” - Can’t retrieve entity config: cataloginventory/stock_status";i:1;s:1130:"#0 /var/www/vhosts/ Mage::exception(’Mage_Core’, ‘Error in file: ...’)
#1 /var/www/vhosts/ Mage_Core_Model_Resource_Setup->_modifyResourceDb(’upgrade’, ‘0.7.8’, ‘’)
#2 /var/www/vhosts/ Mage_Core_Model_Resource_Setup->_upgradeResourceDb(’0.7.8’, ‘’)
#3 /var/www/vhosts/ Mage_Core_Model_Resource_Setup->applyUpdates()

#6 /var/www/vhosts/ Mage_Core_Model_App->run(Array)
#7 /var/www/vhosts/ Mage::run(’’, ‘store’)
#8 {main}”;s:3:"url”;s:1:"/”;s:11:"script_name”;s:10:"/index.php”;s:4:"skin”;s:7:"default";}

The upgrade went well and after going to the site it returned this error (after a few minutes)

Can anybody advice on this. I have tried the solutions mentioned in this forum but no luck so far.
