We did an in-place upgrade to 6.5 from 6.4.2. The pages are now not edit-able (even as an admin). I'm seeing this error:

Internal Server Error

Cannot serve request to /libs/wcm/core/content/pageinfo.json in com.day.cq.wcm.core.impl.servlets.PageInfoServlet

Exception:

java.lang.NullPointerException

This is the what i see when trying to load /libs/wcm/core/content/pageinfo.json:

      0 TIMER_START{Request Processing}

And here's the error :

24.04.2020 09:15:13.487 *WARN* [10.156.90.61 [1587683713197] GET /libs/wcm/core/content/pageinfo.json HTTP/1.1] com.adobe.granite.workflow.core.jcr.WorkflowModelManager Workflow model does not exist: /var/workflow/models/akamai/akamai-vod-delete

java.lang.NullPointerException: null

I think this is because there's RUNNING workflow instances for that a particular model that no longer exists.

I tried purging these workflows from the JMX console but no luck.
 

Thanks in advance,

Unfortunately a NullPointer without any details (java file, line number) is really hard to debug, when you cannot attach a debugger to it.

 

Is the shared excerpt from the "recent requests" all what's logged? I don't see the error being logged.

I tried purging these workflows from the JMX console but the console does not give you a success message, so I doubt it worked. When we tried again and used the correct model ID for the workflow and did the purge, the pageInfo.json started showing and the Pages became editable.

 

So the solution is to PURGE any workflows in a RUNNING state that use a stale workflow model.
