The key part of the error is syntax error, unexpected 'else' (T_ELSE), expecting function (T_FUNCTION)

This is a problem with the PHP code in the file /usr/share/nginx/html/system/database/mysqli.php

Can you link to the module? Is it open source? It sounds like there might be two else’s in an if/else statement. This is a bug in the code.
