It's connected to app's permission to access an sd card. The app doesn't ask for this permission - just throws an error.

I just realised that you can manually allow the storage permission for the app to get it to work right away without a new release.
Exactly how you enable that permission differs from device to device.
This is how you do it on my phone (Huawei P10 Plus):
Settings->Apps & notifications->Apps->MantisDroid->Permissions. Enable Storage.
Now you can download and upload files. There is another bug in the Open Attachment dialog that makes if to fail to open that downloaded file. The downloaded file is located in your Downloads folder in your device.
