I used to query the web page of wikipedia 

 

steps: 

go to get data

choose web 

choose basic

paste URL 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_and_dependencies_by_population 

then hit OK

then the error pops up: Unexpected Error access denied. this was not an issue in the september 2019 edition I still have on my laptop 

 

Please do not ask me why I use wikipedia thats to personal .. 🙂

@sofa ,

 

I have a made a test but the web connector works well on my side as below, my power bi version is  2.83.5894.961 64-bit (July 2020), please make sure power bi desktop has been updated to the latest version and check again.
