seems its a issue with Sp migration 2007 to 2010 ?? and it's can be fix doing below steps .

1.open the site collection in SharePoint Designer 2010, in the Navigation section, click on All Files, then click on _catalogs.

2.Check whether there’s wfpub list or folder. If it is a folder, delete it,

3.then run the below PowerShell commands: $site = Get-SPSite

Disable-SPFeature -Url $site.URL -Identity Workflows -Confirm:$false

Disable-SPFeature -Url $site.URL -Identity OffWFCommon -Confirm:$false

Enable-SPFeature -Url $site.URL -Identity OffWFCommon

Enable-SPFeature -Url $site.URL -Identity Workflows

working all good for my site collection cheers.


Use Force parameter like this:

Enable-SPFeature –identity "c85e5759-f323-4efb-b548-443d2216efb5" -URL http://somesite -Force
