Sounds like you have not installed a pak set (correctly) after updating. How did you upgrade?

I suspect that pakset is a minor issue - that shouldn't cause a crash in itself. More likely to be a race condition in threading, double free or something like that maybe? Is there any particular action you are doing in the game which seems to sometimes cause a crash (say zooming in or out?).

I really suspect that the pak-folder is broken. Updating the whole installation (i.e. delete all pak folders and then start simutrans installer or download them again) should be the easiest way to test and fix it.

I now see that the game doesn't crash with those messages, but hours later. That opens up possibilities.

Also do you know which version you were using before update?
