The plugin, Team Calendars for Confluence, is unable to be enabled from the Add-On Manager in Confluence Admin. This typically occurs after a  plugin update. 

The following appears in the atlassian-confluence.log:

ERROR [ThreadPoolAsyncTaskExecutor::Thread 39] [extender.internal.activator.ContextLoaderListener] onOsgiApplicationEvent Application context refresh failed (NonValidatingOsgiBundleXmlApplicationContext(bundle=com.atlassian.confluence.extra.team-calendars, config=osgibundle:/META-INF/spring/*.xml))
– referer: http://localhost:8090/confluence/plugins/servlet/upm | url: /rest/plugins/1.0/com.atlassian.confluence.extra.team-calendars-key | userName: admin
Configuration problem: Unable to locate Spring NamespaceHandler for XML schema namespace http://www.springframework.org/schema/context
Offending resource: URL [bundle://219.0:0/META-INF/spring/spring-components.xml]


The plugin is trying to load a resource that has somehow been corrupted in the cache.


Try to Clear the plugin cache, so that the plugins are forced to load these resources directly from the .jar files
