Can you try out the next nightly build or the next build from trunk and report back, whether it fixes your issue?

    Sending mime type with parameter throws IllegalArgumentException
    The create method of ContentType doesn't work with mime-types that
    contain multiple parts (separated by semicolons). The parse method
    does, so use that one.

Comment 2 lukasz.pyrzyk 2020-12-22 16:08:34 UTC
Just checked on apache-jmeter-5.4.1-SNAPSHOT from https://ci-builds.apache.org/job/JMeter/job/JMeter-trunk/ and it works great, no issues. 

When can we expect a 5.4.1 release?
Comment 3 Felix Schumacher 2020-12-31 14:20:56 UTC
Can't give a precise estimation of release date, but it should not take long now.
