Unexpected error: Evaluation was canceled. > After May Release Update

Hi there

 

Just got the error message "Unexpected error: Evaluation was canceled." in PBI Desktop after updating the release.

I cannot load my data sources (several types) anymore - but only those I've added in the April release (or earlier). I actually can add data sets on the new release, and they work. So the problem is only with the ones created in the earlier version.

 

Could not find any information about this problem on the net so far.

 

What I did:

Updated from April Release to Release Version: 2.35.4399.601 64-bit (Mai 2016)

Uninstalled PBI and reinstalled it again.

Cleared the Cache.

 

Anything else I can do? Need to update the Reports... ;o(

 

Thank you!

The problem is not quite clear for me. Is the problem that you cannot add other data source types in the pbix created in Apr release than the already created ones when opening that pbix in May release? If yes, May I know what are the already created types and how can I reproduce it. If possible, can you upload the problematic pbix?

By the way, did you send a frown when the error occured?

Hi

 

I've been having the same issues. Sent a from. But it seems to happen when I've merged a query.

 

As a work around, I have to to click each applied steps on the query one by one until it pops up with the "Evaluation was cancelled" and I click on Retry. Can take up to 30 minutes to refresh. Once I've done this its seems to work fine until I make amendments to the query.

Found it helps if you also clear the Power Query cache first

Has anyone found a fix for this. Enormous amounts of time wasted in PQ individually opening, refreshing, and then closing hundreds of queries that have an inexplicable error warning (yellow triangle with exclamation point) that simply says: "Unexpected error: Evaluation was cancelled." My queries are 95% connection only and there are no detectable problems other than an this inexplicable warning everywhere. The warning goes away after individual manual refresh but there's no way to know if and when something "real" is going wrong. Read everything I can find and utterly exhausted.
