Progress Bar not showing on some Epics

We have a backlog with multiple epics and issues/tasks. As of right now, we would like to start adding issues/task/etc into current epics but we are seeing 2 different things.

 - New issues/tasks created within the Epic are added without issues and the progress bar are showing as stated below. The label displays Issues in this epic.

- Existing issues/tasks that are added to an existing epic through Link Issue or by clicking on the show no progress bar after adding them. Also the label display Linked Issues.

Thank you much,

yes sir, I added it and it is now looking good. Thank you for your response.
