Unknown Macro View-file

All the previously uploaded files are not showing anymore. I get "Unknown Macro View-file" and this has happened quite suddenly without making any updates or upgrades to confluence.

I tried uploading pdf files again but seems like the issue exists. I can't have thumbnail view.

My current Confluence version is 5.8.13

yes we managed to resolve the problem. We cleaned the plugin cache(plugins-cache folder on server) and restarted the server.
