To resolve it , you have to re-home the mailbox , sounds like your Migration Mailbox doesn’t belong to a DB for some previous activities:

Set-Mailbox -Arbitration -Identity “Migration.8f3e7716-2011-43e4-96b1-aba62d229136” –Database “Apps”

Set-Mailbox “Migration.8f3e7716-2011-43e4-96b1-aba62d229136” -Arbitration -Management:$true

Now run :

Get-Mailbox –Arbitration
