Automatic refresh of powerbi reports failing after some successful runs



I automated powerbi reports by using python and powershell based on trigger available from source. In development the process is working good and deployed to production that same scripts it worked well some days. After some successfull runs in prod is continiously failing. but one think, i scheduled 5 reports out of them some is acquiring token successfully and some of them not. Its happening randomly on daily basis. below is the error which i am receiving when failure occured. it will be very helpfull if replied ASAP.Thanks...
