Hmm, strange that after the Caused By section of the stacktrace there isn't anything much to describe the problem. Might be related to the bug report here: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-27056?focusedCommentId=409822&page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel

Can you try the workarounds mentioned in the bug report above?
1. Remove the due date from all the issues
2. Set the JIRA language to English once again

If its still not solved I recommend you raise a support request to Atlassian about this.

1.Do you mean "remove the due date" is to hide the due date column in the Issue list?

2.The Indexing language and the Default language in the General Configuration page in Jira is also english,but no effect.
