Can you check and make sure the bundles are running in your system console? There are dependences so you may need to make sure the bundles are started in the proper order. If everything appears normal, i.e. no missing or unresolved bundles, you may be dealing with a corrupt lucene index. This excellent blog post walks you through the steps of fixing a corrupt index.

If you have further issues, do not hesitate to request office hours through the partner learning portal from Adobe.

Thank you
