Sharepoint Error When trying to Add content to a list

Just migrated from Sharepoint 2010 to Sharepoint 2013, different hardware as well. I am trying to add an entry to a list and I get this:
Sorry, something went wrong
An unexpected error has occurred.

Was the 2010 site using the default add item form?  Can you view list settings in 2013 and click in all the columns successfully?

I don't know about the 2010 settings. I'll have to do an update database becaus we renamed it.  But lets look at the 2013 settings.... When you say view the list settings and click columns can you explain exactly how you are getting there and what you want me to click?  I went to the site, clicked site settings, clicked libraries and lists, then selected the list. I have attached a pic of what I am seeing.
And just in case my log file didn't attach the first time I've added that again as well.

MarcViste,

Hopefully I'm not rehashing anything but your log error seems to center around this: "Invalid data has been used to update the list item. The field you are trying to update may be read only."

I assume it was working fine before the upgrade.  How are you entering the information into the list?  Are you doing it via a standard list form, through the list datasheet view mode, or through an infopath form?  Did you customize the list form in any way?

Just trying to see if maybe when you upgraded, that something on the form altered in such a way to cause the problem.

I might also try going through the list and filling it out only entering data into specific fields.  If there are 6 fields.  Try submitting it with only data in field 1.  Then try submitting it with only data in field 1 and 2.  Basically trying to find out if one of the fields is messed up in some way.

I had a weird issue once where the list was erroring on one of my columns.  I ended up deleting that column and creating it again, and that fixed my issue.

That's the thing... I didn't create it. The person who created it isn't at the company anymore and I am literally learning this Sharepoint stuff as I go.

As per the columns, fields... there are 2 one is just named body and the other one seems to tag my username to it when I submit my text in the body.
