Maybe you have missed to clear the cache within the page directories.
For recent moin versions, this is moin ... maint cleancache.

Maybe it also helps to install a fresh underlay copy.

Well, if above does not help, please search the moin wiki if there is a
solution. If you don't find any, file a bug report and give lots of
details including a traceback.html file.

Looks like that page local cache is defective.

Your moin is rather old. Maybe you are struggling with bug(s) we already
fixed. See 1.5.8 and 1.6.0.
