Can no longer change project lead

I used to be able to change project lead very easily in the "users and roles" section of "project settings".  I would click on the "edit defaults" and specify that somebody else should be the project lead.  

As of yesterday, I can no longer pick somebody else to be the project lead. If I click on the name of the person who is currently project lead, it says "no options".  

I can't figure out what changed or how to change it back.  

I checked the instructions and it said that project lead can be changed on the "details" screen in "project settings" but I am not given that option.

Hi Pavan, I am a JIRA Admin. Even when I am logged on as an admin I can't change the project lead. 

Thanks!  I just found that one too.  Relieved to know I'm not the only one who found that confusing.  

I'm still not sure why I don't have the option to change the project lead in the "details" screen because that is much more intuitive. 

But at least I can change project lead now.  

Same problem here. We can't desactivate the user as he is the project lead, but we cannot change the project lead...
