Invalid username error on importing project from Fogbugz on Demand

I am evaluating Jira as potential migration target coming from FogBugz. Unfortunately, importing a project from FogBugz on Demand, following the instructions given by Atlassian, fails and produces the following log:

Even I too facing same problem . If someone has resolved this issue please help .

Had the same issue. Potentially users in Fogbugz with no email address or users with duplicate emails.

Had to get these users from the API.
