The critical problem is that the any version of the plugin credentials-bindings 1.10 ...1.7 is causing the latest Jenkins 2.52 crash at the start.
I had to install the version of 1.6 for Jenkins to start up. That has knock out effect on others plugins and the Pipeline plugin does not work now.
- Pipeline: Model Definition v0.5 is older than required. To fix, install v1.0 or later.
