Receiving 'page already exist' error while moving pages to a new location

Could this be a bug? I can not move some pages to new locations.

  • Checked the destination space for any duplicate content. The destination space doesn't contain any pages with same titles. I tried moving the page to my personal space but received the same error message. 
  • Checked the trash of the destination space but no duplicate pages found.
  •  Renamed the title of pages but receiving the same error message.

Hi Saira,

I suggest creating the pages from scratch and thencopying an pasting if you are still having issues for a quick fix.  I would also contact atlassian support to investigate so that they can find the root cause.
