Cannot change a task status

I cannot change or delete a task which listed on Task List macro.

The error message of "Could not change the status of the task. There might be several reasons" has appeared on the top of window.

The task does not exist in the original page anymore. So I cannot do anything.

How can I delete or change the status for a such tasks?

@Ayumi Iwano ,


Please do a reindex of confluence and give it a try.



Hi Bibek,

Thank you for your reply!

I've got a message of "Temporarily, currently only sysadmin can change indexing language and reindex all documents. Contact Atlassian Support if you need help." in General Configuration page. And I could not find "Content Indexing" menu.
