This can happen if the copper area is combined with copper cut out.
If this is the case you must explode the copper area.
Then you will be able to redefine the copper type.
Is the layer involved defined as Split/Mixed?
Thanks Klaus, your suggestion worked perfectly!
ANSWER: If a shape has been combined with cutout, simply explode it first, reassign the shapes as appropriate, and then recombine them.
