I was originally attempting to do a system restore but after two failed attempts (no longer being able to access Jira), I restored to doing a project import as a test.
I each time I do a project import, I get the following errors:
There was a problem parsing the backup XML file at /var/atlassian/application-data/jira/import/Cloud2.zip: No 'key' field for Issue 26021.
There was a problem parsing the backup XML file at /var/atlassian/application-data/jira/import/Cloud2.zip: No 'key' field for Issue 35418.
What do I need to do to resolve these errors?
The problem is that you cannot pull a backup straight out of the cloud and import projects into a server version. If you are performing a cloud to server merge/migration or cloud to cloud merge/migration these are steps are required.
Here are the steps to avoid this issue for both operations:

I'm afraid this is a bit of a "circular answer". Your backup is missing data for the field "key", so the project import cannot import it. The reason it is missing is that you've manged to create an export with missing key data. So what you need is a valid backup with that data.
I had to change the permission levels for the "jira" folder on the server to allow access to the account I was using.
I don't know if this is how all systems are set up, but this is what I did. My DevOps guy gave me the ip address & login credentials needed to access the server.
1. Using Putty, I changed the Jira folder permissions to allow my account (provided by DevOps) full access.
2. Using WinSCP, uploaded the zip files to the import folder & attachments folder.
3. Changed the Jira folder permissions back to its original settings.
4. Ran the Project Import
I can't remember if that solved this particular problem but I do remember it being a necessary step.
