Hi karenelizabeth. Welcome to the forums!
That is a very odd-seeming error to me, especially for a 1.10.* installation because that is a very stable release package. Okay so let's figure this out then!
You are a blogger on that system yah? Can you create categories and such? You can see the "blog settings" tab but clicking it gives you that error - correct? When you get a trackback from a spammer do you see the little "ban" symbol, and if so does it work for you? Meaning can you click it and get the offending domain name banned and deleted and reported to antispam central?
Just trying to figure out what types of permissions you have that could explain why you can't just turn off trackbacks...
I will have to set myself up with an account on my infrequently-used 1.10.3 test installation and see if I can't make it so I can have a blog settings tab that I can't actually use.
Also have you talked to the system admin there about this issue? IF there is some sort of hacking or plugin that created the blog for you then MAYBE there is a funny thing happening because of the way the blog was created. OTOH if the blog was created by an actual person clicking options then I should be able to duplicate this problem - and hopefully find a solution.
