I would not worry yet, probably somebody will be able to send you the missing file. Although now i see that you unrooted and not able to root again. In this case i don't know. somebody who knows more about root might help you.

Re: Can not root and Update OTA again after unroot.

I think there is no way you can upgrade your tablet once you have deleted some system files and lost the root access. I was stuck with this problem since a month now, but I haven't found any solution.

 

For what I understand, the only possiblity is that Lenovo release an official (signed!) full system image which will allow us to overwrite all system folders without checking for preinstalled apps. But I have the feeling that this won't happen

I certainly would appreciate a full system image; never rooted a device (and possibly will never do) but agree than an official system image will be very helpful both recovering tablets in case of filesystem corruption and making clean installs from scratch.
