I am having similar problems. Did you ever find a solution?

Are you able to view your referenced photos by accessing the Drobo 5n directly in the Finder? If your files are on the new disk you can instruct Aperture to properly link to the new location using File > Locate Referenced Files... First select all of the missing/unlinked images you want to re-connect, then choose File > Locate Referenced Files:
In the subsequent dialog select one of the missing images from the top portion of the window. In the bottom portion, navigate to that image in its new location on the new Drobo, then click Reconnect All. Aperture will use the location of that image to update its other missing references.
You may need to repeat this process several times.

I have tried this with my files. Oddly enough, Aperture knew the correct location for the photos. When I tried to update the location, Aperture worked at it forever and never did complete the update.

I think there is something about the way the Drobo indexes and stores the files. I am having similar problems with my Drobo 5N, so I took it off the network and connected the Drobo 5N directly to a computer via an ethernet cable. I created some test files and folders and put them on the Drobo and accessed them with Aperture. If I am accessing a file directly on the Drobo, it worked fine. But Aperture repeatedly failed to find referenced files on the Drobo 5N
On the other hand, when I move the referenced files back to an internal or external drive, then Aperture works fine. As a test, I created a sparse disk bundle on the Drobo 5N and transferred referenced files onto it. Then Aperture works great. The sparse bundle ensures that my referenced files are stored in a file system in a way Aperture can find them. Nonetheless, this is not a viable workaround because of the slowdown with the sparse bundle.

Did you have any luck solving this? I am having the exact same issue with the duplicated drobo address and not being able to find the referenced files.
