If you are working in on premise environment then you can go to the Active Drectory Users and Computers and then you can select the particular user and add an email address to it.
Then next time when the user profile synchronization happens then the email address should appear and the above error will not appear.

First login as a global administrator and login to SharePoint admin center.
Then from the left side click on user profiles.
Then click Manage User Properties which is under People section.

After this the error should not come.
