The Error in the log file shows:

Caused by: oracle.webcenter.webcenterapp.security.WCSecurityException: No matching users were found with search string Portal3
        at oracle.webcenter.webcenterapp.internal.model.security.WCSecurityManagerImpl.revokeJpsRole(WCSecurityManagerImpl.java:1580)
        at oracle.webcenter.spaces.internal.model.security.SpacesSecurityManagerImpl.revokeRoleAndPublishActivity(SpacesSecurityManagerImpl.java:2884)

NOTE:  Portal3 in this case is NOT a user but the name of the Portal from which the membership is being changed.
The error message is misleading
