Unable to create new projects

HI, We have recently updated to the latest version of gitlab using apt (v12.1.6) and since updating have found that we are unable to create blank projects.

We can get to the creation form but after filling in the nessisary details like names and group to be associated with we click the create project button and the page essentially reloads and doesn’t do anything.

I have found however that if we create a new project using a template the process works fine.
If anyone has an idea as to why creating a blank project is unsuccessful it would be greately appreciated as i have watch all the logs that i can find and there is no indication as to what is going wrong and i don’t see any error messages.

Thanks Nick

This also seems to be exactly the same as a query from 2018 that didn’t get responded to either
