It looks like that you have Unpublished the Administrator module Admin Menu.

Try the following:
  1. Once you have logged in to the site's backend, type the URL http://your-site-url/administrator/index.php?option=com_modules in the address bar of the URL and press <ENTER>
  2. You will be presented with the screen Modules
  3. On the left panel of the screen Modules, choose the location as Administrator in the first Filter (by default, it would be Site)
  4. Now the Administrator modules would be displayed on the right panel
  5. Publish the module titled Admin Menu
In case if the Admin Menu is in a published state, check the position of the module. This module has to be published to the module position menu.

Check whether the file mod-menu.xml is located in the directory \administrator\modules\mod_menu.

If it does not exist, copy the file from the Stable version of Joomla! that is being used for your site.

If it exists, check whether you could read it. Also, check its permissions.
