    I know that the second one is caused by the Timeline which is now a separate package in 2019.1, not sure about the first one though. (I think it's because 2.1.1 is only supported by 2019.1)

    Edit: Removing the Timeline line and downgrading package manager UI to 2.0.3 (By editing the manifest.json file) fixed the problem. I think this should be done automatically when downgrading from 2019.1 -> 2018.3 or lower.

    As far as I understand the following message, downgrading a project is unsupported.

    Yep you should never expect a downgrade to work correctly. Back up! Restore if it goes wrong! Even better, use source control.

    In addition to all the other reasons why downgrading is a bad idea, Unity often runs script upgrade stuff when the API changes, and having to undo that does not sound at all practical.
