This is not a bug, the question is older than 60 days so the migration option is disabled.

See this Meta Stack Overflow Post:

questions older than 60 days should not be eligible for migration, either by normal user close-votes or by moderators. In extreme cases, we can perhaps provide an alternate means of moving old questions, but under normal circumstances these should be done quickly or not at all.

    It would be nice to place that link in red underneath other as a reminder of this 60 day statute-of-limitations. Feb 25, 2014 at 17:15
  • You could make that a feature request. :)
