We can install plugins in jira in 2 ways

Using UPM and second through manual installation.

Earlier if u installed using UPM and if it didn't work, now try installing manually


Download the plugin from Atlassian Plugin Exchange (now Atlassian Market place)

Copy plugin into path <Jira Home Dir>/plugins/installed plugins (check the size after copying)

Restart Jira

Hope this might help.
