Yes, we've found many issues with 5.2.11. Reported to Atlassian support. Had to roll back to 5.2.10. Would advice sticking to 5.2.10 for now. Have seen a few other answers with users report the same.

Hi Brad,

As Harry mentioned, it seems that this is indeed a bug, as there is a KB that talks about it here. There are also steps that can be performed as a workaround, although settling for 5.2.10 is also an acceptable workaround.

Currently the reason this is happening is still unknown though.

looks like a bug in 5.2.11 as the 5.2.10 I rolled back to imports it perfectly
