When installing a new JIRA 7.1.0 instance from scratch and then try to install any add-on from the marketplace, the install fails and the following error is logged:

Restarting JIRA fixes it...  Restarting JIRA before installing any add-on also prevents the error. I'm having the same error, no matter if I start a standalone instance using the SDK or if I download it from the web.  Should I worry about it?

Noted. Thanks for the reference!

Same situation and version for me, on a new install.  All I've done so far is link my Bitbucket account.  Then went to update the universal plugin manager, the same errors came up in my log file.

Restarting JIRA worked, I was able to update the plugin and re-index.
