This is related to disk space.

I faced similar issue, I resolved it via

  1. Looking into logs and Jira Home. Some import places to look are,
    2. <JIRA_HOME>/export
    3. <JIRA_HOME>/log
    4. <JIRA_HOME>/caches
    5. <JIRA_HOME>/plugins/.osgi-plugins/transformed-plugins (this sometimes contain multiple copies of same plugin)
  2. Increasing size disk partition containing Jira Home directory.


Mostly cleaning JIRA_HOME will solve this issue.

Misleading Error:


A potential cause for the error (slated for JIRA 8.1):


Hope this helps, JP
