I would try to stop cyrus on the backend, then look what
ctl_mboxlist -mw
says. If that looks sane and only talks about the mentioned mailbox then try
ctl_mboxlist -m
to fix it. If another "-mw" is silent then restart cyrus.

Do not try ctl_mboxlist while cyrus is running!

Usually "ctl_mboxlist -m" is executed in cyrus.conf on startup on a backend.
Do you have this entry?

  mupdatepush	cmd="ctl_mboxlist -m"
