The default agile custom field name for epic is call "Epic Name". Also, some agile custom fields are "locked" which may prevent updates.

You need to map "Epic" to "Epic Name" in your properties file if you can't change your csv. See this for more info.

For unlocking fields, see https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/GHKB/How+to+unlock+a+Locked+field
