There is a bug in some translation packages for Jira Service Management that cause this problem.

On the example above, the problem was in the Spanish language pack, but there have been reports of other languages causing the same problems.

Best way to find the language is to read the message in the logs and deduce the language from it. 


Download Latest language pack .jar for the desired language for Jira Service Management in the link below

Upload the .jar file at the Manage Apps page in Jira's UI through the Upload App button.
