Cannot allocate because a previous copy of the primary shard existed but can no longer be found on the nodes in the cluster

I have a cluster with two nodes , version es5.4.3. About 26 shards unassigned after machine down. I get these message

GET /_cluster/allocation/explain 
{
  "index": "dcvs_nonmotorvehicle", 
   "shard": 3, 
   "primary": true
}

The results:

    }
  ]
} 

I want to know why did "cannot allocate because a previous copy of the primary shard existed but can no longer be found on the nodes in the cluster" happen ? Thanks a lot.
