  • Status changed from New to Needs feedback

The attachments controller (and several other places in Redmine) rely on the back_url Parameter which is sent along with the update form. I assume you have redacted this parameter along some others in #31815#note-1.

As we validate that this given URL, it might be that it was rejected. To be sure, please send another example log where you observed this issue. Make sure to include the back_url parameter from the logs.

If no back_url was sent, it might be that the previous URL contains invalid characters and was rejected accordingly. In that case, we would need examples of URLs where you observe this issue (where you might redact the hostname and other identifying parts, but must keep the structure and reproducability in place).
