Sorry for the dumb question, but are you sure it is not two different issues? One could be a clone for example or something similar. Do they really have the same issue key?

Could you attach a screenshot showing both issue keys (parent and "child")?

  1. Search for the problematic issue in the database:
    SELECT b.id,b.pkey FROM issuelink a, jiraissue b WHERE a.SOURCE = b.ID AND a.SOURCE = a.DESTINATION;
  2. Convert the children issue back to a normal issue at More Action >> Convert to issue
