Submitting a job in Yarn with HA can lead to the following exception:
org.apache.flink.streaming.runtime.tasks.StreamTaskException: Cannot load user class: org.apache.flink.streaming.connectors.kafka.FlinkKafkaConsumer09

Some job information, including the Blob ids, are stored in Zookeeper. The actual Blobs are stored in a dedicated BlobStore, if the recovery mode is set to Zookeeper. This BlobStore is typically located in a FS like HDFS. When the cluster is shut down, the path for the BlobStore is deleted. When the cluster is then restarted, recovering jobs cannot restore because it's Blob ids stored in Zookeeper now point to deleted files.
