Check theme install.
A wrong theme install (theme copied inside theme) will create duplicate page templates and wordpress will not be able to know which is the correct one. Solution is to remove the wrong theme. Have just 1 theme wpresidence in wp-content/themes.
You may need to edit all custom page templates and save them again after you correct the error.
