In the file 10_Old_friends_mask.mask is coded a terrain Uu^Uf which does not exist in the 1.14 map editor.
You could try replacing Uu^Uf with another code in the above file; you can try with Uu^Tf (not recommended :( ) or Uu^Emf or Uu^Ufi; they are the closest to the original.
good luck
The terrain code is still usable in the 1.14 map editor. It was removed for 1.15.
The error here, however, is due to the map generator in the scenario file being no longer supported.
It's stated here. (last paragraph, above the YAMG gen heading)
Note that I opened bug #5293 about this. (I already told Lord-Knightmare previously; this is just for the benefit of other people reading)

So, I fixed the map generator bug and am now up to S18 (The Investigation) in my playthru... I'm kinda wondering what I should do once I get to the "end" (as it currently stands)? Should I try finishing writing the missing scenarios myself, or just upload it (to the 1.14 server) as-is once I'm done with the existing scenarios?

As the current maintainer, you're somewhat obligated to present a satisfactory ending to the campaign. However, how you achieve that is up to you. I would suggest uploading the 18-scenarios to enable feedback so you can improve on the existing scenarios and then gradually proceed with the remaining scenarios.

It would be really cool if someone would complete this wonderful UMC gem. :D

OK, so I have completed going over the original 21 scenarios that were already finished before I started editing this campaign, and I can say they're all safely ported to 1.14 now. How should I go about uploading it to the add-on server? Should I ask Anonymissimus for the original _server.pbl or write a new one?

Is the original author still active? If not, then make your own PBL file. If yes, then ask for the original file.
