I've been seeing this error today as well. Looks like WCM is broken on 3.3C.

Comment by Mark Rogers [X] (Inactive) [ 08-Apr-10 ]

Raised severity from Critical to Blocker. This should have blocked the 3.3 C release.

The exception also occurs against Alfresco 3.2.1 EE b 486 - Stack 1 (environment: Suse 11.1, Websphere, Oracle 10.2g, Alfresco +OpenLDAP Client: MacOS X 10.5.5, Safari 3.2.1)

Comment by Jan Vonka [ 12-Apr-10 ]

Workaround: pre-zip the file (or set of files) that need to be added to the folder, and then use "Bulk import" instead of "Add Content"

The component originally used was not a supported, recognisable system component with an associated component owner. Either the component never existed (it was fictional) or it has reached end-of-life.
The issues will be closed. Reopen and assign to an existing system component if necessary. Use labels appropriately.
