Page Update notifications broken after upgrading from 3.1 to 3.5.13 to 4.0.3

We recently upgraded our Confluence instance from 3.1 to 4.0.3 with the necessary 3.5.13 version in between. Whenever a page that has watchers is updated, we are seeing the attached exception in the atlassian-confluence.log.

We were having issues saving changes to pages until I found the Knowledge Base article related to CONF-20318. My database has boolean values for DIGEST and NETWORK as opposed to the (0,1) as mentioned in the bug. Following the steps in the KB, I set the values to FALSE where the KB references 0, and TRUE where the KB references 1. The saving issue has been resolved, but no notifications are received for page updates.

I can verify that the daily digest email of changes is working properly as well as the test SMTP server email.

We still had the Metadata plugin enabled (which was known to be incompatible with Conf 4.0). Upon disabling, this issue went away.
