VirtueMart 2.6.x does not work with your old PHP 5.2.7 version. It requires a minimum of PHP 5.3.10 as announced in April 2014:

Please mention your VirtueMart, Joomla and PHP versions when asking a question in this forum

Currently using VM on Joomla 3.9.21 PHP 7.4.9

Actually it should still run, you need the higher version for correct encryption. Your error looks like that you did not enter anything correctly, as the message says.

Furthermore you have a problem with your vendor. You can administrate as not shopowner the store, but you it seems your rights are too low (neither admin, nor vendor)
I should fix your bug, please support the VirtueMart project and become a member

a) I've have set my joomla user like super-user. And in VM I set in shoppers like a vendor this super-user. Also I put in migration de ID of my super-user joomla like a vendor.

b) I had try to to change via phpMyAdmin the ID of my super-admin (I have created another one) like a ID 1. And repeat the process of making like vendor in Vm that I explain in a). I've test that only a vendor it's set (I enable multi vendor and I see that only has this like a vendor. And later disable)

So I think I put all the permissions correctly.

Now I will change the PHP version, I will see like that if is ok.
