White screen error after update to latest version

I’m getting a white screen error both on the site and admin after updating to the latest version of Sydney Pro. Disabled all plugins and this is what the debug says:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘[’ in /mnt/web116/c0/26/53921226/htdocs/WordPress_06/wp-content/themes/sydney-pro/functions.php on line 495

code reads as follows:

// here is some base default settings set by the choose control
protected function get_default_settings() {
return [
‘primary_color’ => ‘#333333’,

This has happened on two different sites, would highly appreciate a quick solution …

Hello there,

Did you edit the functions.php file? To fix it, try to open this file from Sydney Pro theme package saved in your drive, and then copy all of the code. Log in to your site admin area (/wp-admin), then navigate to Appearance > Editor > select Sydney Pro > edit functions.php file, remove all of the code then paste into there.

Let me know if it does anything.
