In 4.9.9 vs 4.8.6 the Add/Edit Item interface is "tabbed" with the first tab having the fields for uploading an image and a thumbnail image.  What I found was that after specifying the files to be uploaded you must hit the Ok or Submit or whatever the button is to commit the changes before navigating to another tab or the two form fields where you specified the product image and thumbnail image are blanked.

Have you checked your web server error log for messages?  There may be a clue in there.
