Move epic to another project fails


I need to move epics from one project to another project. When I do this I open an epic, go to move, then I can select the project where I want to put the epic to and I map the issue type epic to epic.

When I then click Next I only get a message "The issue type selected is invalid" and I continue to stay on the move issue page step 1.

I tried it as well with an epic without user stories attached to - same result.

The target project has the epic issue type enabled and I can create them there. But I can't move existing epics into the project.

Any ideas?

Thank you very much
