I have 4 websites running on WordPress for at least ten years and have never had cause to complain, I am in the process of rebuilding them all, the site I am doing at the moment had approx. 300 pages containing 3500 vintage photographs and it was no problem at all for about the last six years. I have now reached 210 pages and suddenly I could not assign a parent page in the attributes section, the only items were Home & About us, I also noticed that the parents were very haphazardly sorted before they disappeared. I believe this is due to the Gutenberg Blocks system, I have tested this site with the Classic Editor and there is no problem except I have now built over half the site and cannot proceed with the Classic Editor as i have built a specific page template with blocks and it does not work with Classic.
To say I am annoyed is an understatement, I have wasted a lot of time trying to sort this out, if Gutenberg is so wonderful how come it cannot perform simple mathematical calculations, WordPress doesn’t seem to have the problem, I only have to look at Quick Edit and all the parents are available, any suggestions before I go bonkers would be welcome, and yes I know I can work around it with Quick Edit but that is not the point.
I was advised by Joy to test while using the Health Check plugin in Troubleshoot mode to disable plugins/theme, which I did and used the default theme but the problem was still there. The parent attributes section was still fine in quick edit mode.

Ok that is fine but how come it is still going on as these duplicate reports are quite old and although I run several sites the info on the other reports means nothing to me, I am having to bodge my work tp get it done.
