Upon upgrade to JIRA Agile, the instance were not able to complete a specific upgrade task - GhUpgradeTask037. The following error appears in the atlassian-jira.log

2013-08-26 00:54:08,518 TP-Processor13 ERROR sysadmin 53x7850x1 lala, /rest/plugins/1.0/com.pyxis.greenhopper.jira-key [sal.core.upgrade.PluginUpgrader] Upgrade failed: null

The NPE was being thrown because the upgrade task not being able to be completed because workflow description is blank. This is a bug that currently being tracked below:

GHS-9727 - Getting issue details... STATUS


A revised version of the upgrade task was implemented. Upgrade to JIRA Agile instead.
