I have a dataflow setup for a long time which refresh UK morning time. Over the last few days, the refresh is failing with strange timeout error. Yesterday, the refresh failed after 30mins, with the error below. The dataset on which the I got the error was only executing for 1min and 30.9secs.

How do we findout where is the problem - is it a problem on the gateway or on the PowerBI service?
As a last resort, you can try swapping the workspace out of Premium to Pro and wait a few minutes. Then switch the workspace back to Premium. This solution may help to provide relief, but the issue could reoccur.
