workflow failed to run on existing item but ok on the same new item

As per subject, I am puzzled by this error message when the same workflow runs on an existing item:

Retrying last request. Next attempt scheduled in less than one minute. Details of last request: HTTP NotFound to https://xxxxxxxxxx


Item does not exist. It may have been deleted by another user.



When running the same workflow from a new item it works fine all the way, but on an item where the workflow used to fail, it continues to fail.

Therefore I cannot re-run it on all the items and I do not want to have to recreate the items since they will lose the CreationBy and Created on date.


My gutfeeling is that there is something wrong with the workflow history list, as if there is already an item in the workflow history for that item ID and therefore it needs to be purges before running the workflow again, but how to find that  "workflow cache" ?


thank you for your input,
