Unable to delete issues after upgrading to JIRA Server v7.7.0

After a long and quite protracted upgrade from v6.1.7 to v7.7.0, including moving the database from SQL to MySQL (v5.7.21), during testing, I am able to create and amend issues, but cannot delete them. I have also moved JIRA from 32 bit to 64 bit. Deleting two separate issues also throws up different errors, one referring to jira-dvcs-connector-plugin and the other to com.pyxis.greenhopper.jira. Both these issues have been generated in a test system. The first as follows (partial):

Resolved - after digging in my system settings, it transpired that I had installed JIRA Software at some point. This was showing alongside the JIRA Core server. Core was licensed, Software was not and somehow all projects had been converted to Software projects!

Be careful of software versions you download, although this is not always apparent.

I uninstalled the JIRA Software and can now delete issues.
