Resolution

  1. Delete both task and assignment in Clarity (if there) for the summary task mentioned in the logs
  2. Open project to MSP
  3. Create a new task under the summary task 
  4. Move the resource(s) down from the summary task (if still present) down to the new task
  5. Click Save

If the above doesn't help, remove the project from the prdocument table then retry any of the steps above if the task is still showing incorrectly as a summary task with assignments. See KB Remove a MSP project from the prdocument table for steps on how to do this and the impact.
