Can't refresh any datasets on BI online service

Yesterday, all my datasets were refreshing just fine but today nothing happens.

- The automatic refresh hasn't done anything.

- When I press "Refresh now", I get a "popup" saying "preparing refresh" for a split second and then nothing happens.


The only way to update the data is to refresh the Desktop version and then upload it. 


I have datasets connection to an on-premises database and one connecting to a sharepoint site.

- The on-premises connection usually works perfect, but now nothing happens.

- The sharepoint connection usually brings up an error,  if I try to refresh, but now nothing happens (I just tried it this time as a test, as it usually doesn't work automatically).


Can you please help troublefinding - It seems like an issue on you online portal somehow.


Thanks in advance.

I have the same issue as the original post. Using the Power BI service to connect to a CSV file inside One Drive - Business. This should refresh automatically every hour. It does not. Can't even manually refresh it. The little refresh status on the top right corner appears and disappears in a split second.
