    RESOLUTION

    Option 1

    1. Restart the SharePoint timer service on all Web and App servers.
    2. Find the job-webconfig-modification timer job running in Central Admin and cancel it.

    Option 2

    Use the PowerShell scripts below to find and delete the job(s).

    SHAREPOINT 2010, SHAREPOINT 2013

    DO NOT RUN THE FOLLOWING SCRIPT IN SHAREPOINT 2016 FARMS.
    Get-SPTimerJob -Identity "job-webconfig-modification" | Format-Table -Property DisplayName, Id, LastRunTime
    
    $job = Get-SPTimerJob -identity "GUID" -WebApplication webApplicationName
    
    $job.Delete()

     

     SHAREPOINT 2016

    Get-SPTimerJob -Identity "job-webconfig-modification" | Format-Table -Property DisplayName, Id, LastRunTime
    
    $job = Get-SPTimerJob -identity "GUID" 
    
    $job.Delete()


    Once the job has been deleted, rerun the activities that lead to the error (enabling live, web application feature activation for forms etc)
