Project Admin unable to close sprint

Multiple admins on various projects have gotten this error when trying to close a sprint: "To update this sprint you must have Project Administrator permission for all of the following projects: x."

  • The user DOES have project admin access.
  • I ran a query and there are no issues in the sprint that are not in the project.
  • Since this has now happened ~4 times for different admins/projects, perhaps there is a bug?

But in the same board and project we have 4 sprints

Out of 4 sprints , we are to get the "complete sprint" option for 3 sprints but not for other one.

we are using the same project and same board for all 4 the sprints .out of 4 sprints 3 are good why the remanaing one
