Welcome to the community!

This is an issue that puts too little information in front of you on-screen.  We need to go read the log file for the actual errors.  You can find this in <jira home>/logs/atlassian-jira.log

Thanks are the logs

Ok, that's Garbage Collection failing, not the database.  This can be caused by all sorts of things, but in this case, I notice your maximum heap size is set to the default value (768Mb), which is very small and only usually used to get an empty one running.  I would try increasing to 1Gb and trying again.
