I got the same error after upgrading the Universal Plugin Manager.

I was able to resolve this by restarting Jira.

Hope that helps.

Restarting JIRA cleared the error for me as well.

I have also seen this occur just now. I upgraded my Universal Plugin Manager. (I'm on JIRA 5.0.5) After that, I noticed that my JIRA Importers plugin was no longer enabled (prior to UPM upgrade, it was enabled). I attempted to re-enable the Importers plugin, and got this error message.

I too am getting the same error after upgrading to the newest UPM. I'm running Greenhopper 5.10.5.1, Jira 5.0.4 and UPM 2.4.1. For some reason when I disabled the JIM plugin the message goes away. However, I'm not unable to enable Agile Cards or the Wallboard plugins.

Hi Matt,

It sounds the correct way to do, because you're using GreenHopper 5.10.5.1 and your JIRA's version (5.0 - 5.1.2) is corrected as it has to be, then I'm wondering if you have checked JIRA's 5.0.4 compatibility with JIM Plugin properly. I'm guessing JIM Plugin isn't supported by your current JIRA's version.


Kind Regards
