Possible Reason :

1. You have recently moved your content db from an old server , the display names for page layouts seems to be updated ( even on mouse hover) but internally older server name is being referred.
2. Even after updating page layout via object model , publishing cache is not flushed.
Possible Resolution:

1.

For all the Publishing pages under source variation , update property “PublishingPageLayout” to http://NewServerName/_catalogs/masterpage/PageLayoutFileName.aspx [ old value
http://OldServerName/_catalogs/masterpage/PageLayoutFileName.aspx ]
page.ListItem.Properties["PublishingPageLayout"] = newPageLayout;

2. Flush object cache at http://ServerName/_Layouts/objectcachesettings.aspx
3. IISRESET
4. Restart owstimer.exe
5. Under http://ServerName/_Layouts/VariationLabels.aspx again schedule create Hierarchies.
6. Have a cup of tea.
7. Start the Timerjob ‘Variations Create Hierarchies Job Definition’ manually or wait for the schedule.
8. Keep an eye on http://ServerName/_Layouts/VariationLogs.aspx
