Anyone? After upgrading a second machine to KDE/Plasma 5, I have the same

Using KMail I can no longer add any attachment to an email nor save an
existing attachment to disk.

I'm running KMail (Gentoo doesn't have the KDE5 version in tree yet, so KDE4),
and I send file attachments all the time. So I can say it's at least not
*intrinsically* broken...

Much of KDE4 and KDE5 wind up installed side by side, FWIW. I'd suggest
cycling through emerge @preserved-rebuild, revdep-rebuild, depclean, and see
if that shakes something loose.

The KDE4->KDE5 transition was generally a royal PITA for me, too, though I
can't remember what all broke...

Kwooty, an nzb downloaded, has the same problem. It's "4" as well. Hit the "Open" button, a file dialogue pops up, closely followed by "Error Kwooty" -> "The process for the file protocol died unexpectedly". File -> Open gets the same.

Dragging and dropping into the main window works and once the nzb files have been parsed, kwooty behaves as expected.

This failure corresponds with a big update of KDE 5 stuff. I've just has a quick browse through bugs for the last 36 hours and nothing jumps out.
