I spent almost 2 hours to check and debug the error. It turned out that our project deployment was not updated. If I tell you why the error was generated, you might get shocked. The aspx file version is not updated or the old copy of the ListKDToolsAllSemesters.aspx was deployed rather than a latest one!!!!! Enjoy the fun and sadness of the computer world!!!
