This is probably because the Kepler plugin is out of date. Try removing all the files from the <JIRA HOME>/plugins/installed-plugins directory then restarting JIRA. If the issue persists, I recommend filing a support ticket with us at: https://support.atlassian.com/

Thank you Boris, i have removed all files from jira_data/plugins/installed-plugins directory and restarted JIRA worked.

After i login to JIRA/Add-ons, i got below error

If i disable connection, how do i install plugins?

Your help is appreciated
