IN some scenario for configurable product , when we update the url-key , it is storing in the "catalog_product_entity_url_key" but in the admin panel it is the old key , we also flushed the cache and did reindexing from shell, still it is showing the same url-key .

Now when we update the description it throws error

Product with the '-------' url_key attribute already exists.

If we update the url-key and the description it gets updated , but url-key is still the same .

If your EE is newer then 13, you should also update table *enterprise_url_rewrite*
and set value for field identifier equal to catalog_product_entity_url_key.value


If if delete from catalog_product_entity_varchar the value whose attribute id is url_key i.e., 97 and store id is 1, its solving the issue.
