This is one that needs to go to Atlassian support over at - we need to read logs to help find out what is going wrong, but only Atlassian have access to Cloud logs.

Thank you!

I had the same issue with importing and created a support ticket. JIRA team is working to solve this, see the progress here: 

There is a "workaround" described on the linked issue (modifying entities.xml file) and that worked for me. Hoping it will be fixed soon.
