Hi, it looks like you are running in to the problem described by this Knowledge Base article: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONFKB/Confluence+Fails+to+Start+with+LuceneException

The suggested resolution is to rebuild your content indices from scratch: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONFKB/Rebuild+the+Content+Indices+from+Scratch

If you need additional assistance understanding what is exactly required in order to rebuild your content index in Confluence, please feel free to contact Atlassian support for help: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Troubleshooting+Problems+and+Requesting+Technical+Support#TroubleshootingProblemsandRequestingTechnicalSupport-RaisingaSupportRequestwithAtlassian

Did you noticed any misbehavior in Confluence?

As mentioned before try rebuild index from scratch, which basically is necessary to shut down the application and them delete the index directory located in the home directory...after that restart the Confluence.
