"Grant all users permissions for this space" completely broken on free plan?

I can't find a way to report this as a free user without a support plan, but it looks like this feature is totally broken.  My team imported an old Confluence self-hosted server database into the free Cloud plan, and it included some space permissions which we need to wipe out.  This feature works on individual pages, but the feature to "Grant all users permissions for this space" constantly errors out even from accounts with full admin permissions.  According to Chrome's inspector, the actual error is this: 

java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: You are not allowed to add the SETPAGEPERMISSIONS permission to the anonymous user.

It seems like it should be a pretty easy fix on their side of things, since it looks like the blanket permissions are just being set in an invalid way, but I can't see a way around this from the user side.  Does anyone know a way around this?  Without being able to reset all of the permissions, my team is unable to work with this space.

Hello Jared and welcome to the Community!

It is unfortunate to hear about a permissions issue as soon as you were migrated into cloud. I can confirm this is an issue our Support teams will have to resolve and I will be creating a support case on your behalf.

This issue does seem to be a very edge case issue, and we do have a bug recorded for this matter: Override all permissions on spaces ends up in error.

With that said, please check your inbox shortly for an email from support to help resolve this issue.
