This issue happens in the new dashboard ONLY. It works fine in old dashboard. However, this is not a really functional blocker per se this is more of a language/UI problem and user can still continue with completing task after closing warning message.

Engineering is working on permanent fix. Assign buddy task can be completed from Old Dashboard and also from new dashboard task can be completed after closing warning pop up.
