Briefly, this error occurs when Elasticsearch fails to update the statistics of a data transform due to issues with the transform configuration ID. This could be due to the ID not existing, being incorrect, or the transform being in a state that doesn’t allow updates. To resolve this, ensure the transform configuration ID is correct and exists. Also, check the state of the transform and make sure it’s in a state that allows updates. If the problem persists, consider recreating the transform with a new ID.
