Delete the following directory. If will eliminate the broken index.
Check available disk space. If no space left, re-indexing freezes at that point and perhaps that might be the root cause.
After starting JIRA, do a full re-index.
Sometimes Cancel Indexing did not stop... We had a trouble with a calculated field, a formulae was badly finishes (with a plus symbol) and it doesn't finished.
We stop Jira, startup.sh again. Kill'd process and startup.sh again clean. Then we found field formulae error. We chang'd it right and reindex finally fine :)
