Can you help me with English please?
That was one of the only times I saw him cry.
What does "times" mean in this case?

Actually that expression does not make sense, though many people do use it.
Logically it should be: "That was the only time I saw him cry", or: "That was one of the few times I saw him cry."
Indeed "times" means "occasions" in that sort of context.

"One of the only times" makes no sense to me. Either it was the only time, or you could say 'one of very few times."

He almost never cried. That was one of the few occasions when I did see him cry.
