In Winter '19, this permission is now disabled for standard profiles:

In Winter ’19, this permission will be removed from all standard profiles. You can create a permission set granting the “Manage Customer Users” permission to users who manage customer users and assign it to their profiles.

If this permission is in your source code, you'll need to remove it in order to deploy your profiles. If you still need this permission, you need to create a permission set for it and assign it to users that should be able to use this feature.
