Edit the issue.

It may be that your edit screen is missing the version field.  It might be hidden by your preferences (check the cog at the top right), but if it's not just hidden, you'll need an admin to add it to the screen.

Yes Nic, if was not added to the screen. Once added, in the edit screen I am able to change the version number.
