Found the issue, this issue usually means there is multiple ticket under the same name. I found the workaround in here.

Though I am not sure why it happen only on move after the 4.4.6 upgrade, but it seems htat I can ask this question to Atlassian Support team regarding this.

Hi Eva,

The first step is run the JIRA Integrity Checker.

Looking forth, if it didn't solve, you run the following SQL query?

select * from fieldlayout;

I believe that you may have duplicated field configurations, and it can cause this error. If it is the case (and there is two or more "Default Field Configurations" schemes), you will need to drop this values on the database and only keep the one with ID = 10000. Please remember to perform a database backup (and JIRA backup) before removing any data. And, if this problem becomes critical for you, please create an issue in Atlassian Support.

Best regards,
Lucas Timm

Integrity Checker fails with 503 error. The select statement didnt end up with any duplicate value. There is no duplicate on field configuration scheme...I would love to reach out to Atlassian support, but that would require me to wipe all the Client data first and that will takes hours to do that.
