XF 1.5 Broken Image Links

Redirected URLs will not work if you aren't running 1.5.11.

You may also need to refetch the images after upgrading.

Not in the UI. You may be able to force a refresh of all failed images using:
UPDATE xf_image_proxy SET fail_count = 1 WHERE fail_count > 1;
That should set all failed images to be retried on their next fetch.
