Cause

You are trying to perform the instance sync from a 2005 release environment to a 1911 one.

In 2005, it was added a dependency on the new core object definition "PeriodicTimeAccountUpdateProfile", and the target environment will not have this yet since is on 1911 release. 

Resolution

During this period where both environments are in different releases, it will not be possible to sync these objects using Instance Sync. The 2005 release is scheduled to achieve Production environments on June 5th.

As workaround, the objects can be copied manually.
