Assignee does NOT have assignable permission or they are turned off (when they aren't)

I keep getting the following error when I try and create a ticket:-

Assignee: The default assignee does NOT have ASSIGNABLE permission OR Unassigned issues are turned off.

We've just got the trial for the Jira and I have turned on 'allow unassigned issues' from the General Configurations settings, but still get this error.

Please advise,

Thank you very much! I didn't realise it was project specific. :)

Looks like today's update caused an issue with the default assignee accounts. You need to reassign the default assignee manually....
